The only ranking that really matters is the one that comes after the MIAC Championships in late October. Still, it's always nice to know other teams think highly of you. Hamline's men's cross country team is ranked 8th in the first regular USTFCCA Central Region rankings. St. Olaf ranks first in the ratings. Bethel is 7th. the Pipers, who opened their season last week with a tie for 4th place at the All-American Invite in Decorah, Iowa, are one place ahead of MIAC rival St. John's.
