Following their first meet of the 2020 season, the Cleveland Community College Men’s Cross Country team is ranked 24th in the nation. The polls for week 2 of the United States Track and Field and Cross Country Coaches Association (USTFCCCA) were released on September 23.
The ranking follows the Yetis first meet of the season held at Montreat College on September 18. According to Coach Steve McCachren, meet results are submitted to the USTFCCCA for review by a panel of coaches who monitor race results and create the poll. The panel considers the final results, the distance, weather, type of course and course conditions.
Members of the Cleveland Community College cross-country team include Noah Lesser from East Lincoln High School, Jonas Guffey and Kinser Hudson from Lincoln Charter School and Madison McCabe from North Lincoln High School.
Other team members are King’s Mountain’s William Fuzie and Dylan Williams, South Point’s Drake Ballard and Lindy Jenkins from Pinnacle Classic Academy.
The team is scheduled to run in the Columbia College Koala Classic in Columbia, South Carolina on October 3 and the Royals Challenge in Charlotte on October 9.
