UTEP Men’s Program Ranks 10th in the Nation

The UTEP men’s program for both cross country and track and field ranks 10th in the nation announced by the U.S. Track and Field and Cross Country Coaches Association Tuesday evening.

The USTFCCCA Program of the Year Award is given annually to the most outstanding cross country and track and field programs in each of the NCAA’s three divisions. In order to be eligible for the award, teams must qualify for each of the NCAA Championships.

The rankings honor the institutions that achieve the most success each academic year over all three seasons (cross country, indoor track and field and outdoor track and field), based on the school’s finishes at the NCAA Championships.

UTEP’s cross country team finished 29th at the 2016 NCAA Cross Country Championships. The track and field team finished 22nd at the indoor NCAAs and 23rd at the outdoor NCAA Championships. The Miners tallied a total of 77 points.

UTEP is the only Conference USA representative in the rankings.
