NEW ORLEANS – Following a strong outing at the Pre-National Invitational last weekend, the Ole Miss men’s cross country team jumped up eight spots to No. 16 in the USTFCCCA National Rankings released on Tuesday.


The Rebels entered last weekend ranked No. 24 nationally and went on to finish fifth at the massive Pre-National meet behind four top-12 schools while also beating out three ranked teams in No. 5 Arkansas, No. 19 Georgetown and No. 27 Utah State. All five scorers finished within the top-61 places out of 282 finishers, including top finisher and senior Sean Tobin (20th, 23:30.3), freshman Parker Scott (33rd, 23:45.6), senior Derek Gutierrez (35th, 23:47.2), freshman Waleed Suliman (49th, 23:59.2) and senior Ryan Manahan (61st, 24:09.8).


This marks the 15th straight poll that the Ole Miss men have been ranked or receiving votes, dating back to the final week of the 2015 season. Throughout this stretch, the Rebels have reached an overall program-high of No. 10 in Week Four of 2016.


The Rebel women, meanwhile, are still ranked at No. 22 following a tough battle at Pre-Nationals against a bevy of other nationally ranked teams. Ole Miss put up a solid finish of ninth behind seven top-25 teams – including four top-10 teams. Freshman Clio Ozanne-Jaques led the way for the Rebel women in 63rd place at 20:51.1.


Ole Miss has this week off to prepare for the SEC Championships on Fri., Oct. 27, in Athens, Georgia.
