KANSAS CITY, Mo. – A changing of the guard took place in the second 2014 NAIA Women's Cross Country Coaches' Top 25 Poll of the regular season, as British Columbia overtook Biola (Calif.) as the No. 1-ranked team, the national office announced Wednesday.
The Thunderbirds made the jump from No. 3 to the top-spot by earning 576 points and collecting 10 first-place votes. British Columbia, the 2013 national champion, is back in a familiar position. Last season, the team went wire-to-wire with 12-straight No. 1 selections.
