The Black Hills State University men and women’s cross country teams will be competing in the Santa Clara Bronco Invitational this Saturday, October 17. Both teams are coming off impressive wins in the Montana State University-Billings Yellow Jacket Invitational last Saturday, October 10. After falling out of the NAIA Cross Country Coaches Top 25 Poll earlier this season both teams are back in.

The Running Yellow Jacket women are ranked 21st while the men are 16th. With the exceptions of one week this year (women October 7th and the men September 30th) the women’s team has been ranked in the NAIA Coaches Top 25 Poll every week since 1999 and the men since 2000.
