NEW ORLEANS, La. - The Alaska Anchorage men’s and women’s track & field teams continued to be ranked in the top 20 nationally, according to the national team computer rankings conducted by the U.S. Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association (USTFCCCA) on Tuesday. The women’s team sits at No. 11, while the men are No. 17.

The women’s team, which advanced one position from Week 6, continues to lead the Great Northwest Athletic Conference with its nearest league foe, Seattle Pacific, at No. 25. The Seawolves moved to No. 1 in the West Region for the first time of the season, displacing No. 2 Grand Canyon.

The men’s team, which has been polled in the top 20 since the start of the 2010 season, fell two positions from Week 6’s No. 15 ranking. The Seawolves continue to be the lone GNAC team in the top 25 and are fifth in the West Region, with Chico State leading the region. Western Washington sits one spot above UAA in the region at No. 4.

Leading Div. II on the women’s side is Grand Valley State, while Saint Augustine’s bypassed Adams State for No. 1 in the men’s poll.
