NAIA Top-25 Postseason Poll
KANSAS CITY - The Taylor University men's cross country team garnered votes in the NAIA Top-25 Poll for the fourth time this season, ending the 2013 campaign with five points in the final poll of the season.

The five points put Taylor at No. 37 in the poll and matched TU's total from the October 23 poll, which was the final poll in a stretch of three-straight weeks during which Taylor flirted with a NAIA Top-25 ranking. The Trojans' high-water mark came in the October 10 poll, with 16 points for the 35th-highest point total in the nation.

Taylor will be poised to climb the rankings in 2014, with its sights set on earning a top-25 ranking for the first time since October 8, 2009, as it is set to return all but one runner to the squad that fell just six points shy of a Crossroads League Championship and an automatic bid to the NAIA Nationals.
