For the first time in school history, the Men's Cross Country received votes in the NAIA Top 25 Preseason Poll. The poll was voted upon by a panel of head coaches representing each of the conferences, independents and unaffiliated groups. The first regular-season Top 25 Poll will be announced Sept. 18.
In the Appalachian Athletic Conference, the Bulldogs are ranked second behind Bryan College, who was ranked 7th in the Preseason Poll.
