For the fifth-straight release of the 2014 NAIA Women's Cross Country Coaches' Top 25 Poll, British Columbia is the No. 1 squad, the national office announced Wednesday. The defending national champions collected 622 points and all 2 first-place votes for the third-consecutive week on the way to another top spot.
The Thunderbirds have put a tight grasp on the No. 1 position since reclaiming it on Sept. 24, as the team looks to carry the ranking through the end of the season just as it did in 2013. Last year, British Columba recorded 12-straight No. 1 rankings and the national championship.
