The women's cross country team at Rocky Mountain College is ranked No. 11 in the NAIA preseason Top 25 coaches poll, which was released on Wednesday.

This is the highest ranking ever for coach Alan King's team.

Fellow Frontier Conference schools Carroll College and Lewis-Clark State are ranked No. 5 and No. 15.

"This goes to show how tough the Frontier is," King said. "Over 200 NAIA schools compete in cross country and to have three schools rank that high is amazing.

"While it is nice to have others recognize us, this is only the preseason and we won't really know what we have until we step on the race course."

The Battlin' Bears will compete at the Black Hills State University Invitational on Sept. 13.
