|Scots' Men's Track Team Nationally Ranked
|After a one-week absence, the Monmouth College men's track team is back in the national rankings as reported by the U.S. Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association (USTFCCCA).
The Fighting Scots not only got back into the rankings, they pulled into the 18th position in this week's USTFCCCA rankings, which compares teams based on performances during the current season. The rankings, released each Wednesday by the USTFCCCA, gave Monmouth a score of 36.92, less than four points from a top 15 slot and less than three points behind UW-Whitewater in 17th.
Three nationally-ranked teams will be competing at Monmouth on February 13 in the Fighting Scot Invitational at the Huff Athletic Center. No. 7 UW-La Crosse will join Monmouth and UW-Whitewater in the nine-team meet. Field events begin at 1:30 p.m.
