Cyclones in good position with all-sports ranking


A year ago, Iowa State finished fifth in the Big 12’s annual all-sports rankings. It was the best finish in school history and first time the Cyclones ranked in the upper division.

With the completion of the fall sports regular seasons (football, volleyball, men’s & women’s cross country and soccer) last weekend, the Cyclones are currently fifth among its peers in the league.

The women’s runners won their fourth straight Big 12 Championship last month to set the pace in the fall season. Christy Johnson-Lynch’s volleyball team scratched out a second-place finish and the men’s cross country squad ran to third place.

Oklahoma State leads the standings currently with West Virginia, Oklahoma and Texas in pursuit. There is a logjam from fifth to eight with the Cyclones, Baylor, Kansas and Kansas State closely bunched.

Additionally, the first national all-sports standings (three sports counted) were released last week and the Cyclones were 14th.
