Manchester University's men's and women's teams each earned accolades with the release of the United States Track and Field and Cross Country Coaches Association's Division III national and Great Lakes regional polls this week.
MU's men stayed third in the region, trailing Wabash and Calvin, and moved up one spot nationally to No. 26 in the wake of their third-place finish at the Indiana Intercollegiate Little States Championships Sept. 20. The women jumped into the regional poll, at No. 10, following their fourth-place effort this past weekend.
The Spartans are off from competition this week. They continue preparations for the 2013 Division III Pre-Nationals meet at Hanover College Saturday, Oct. 5.
