For the first time in program history, the Menlo College men's cross country team drew attention in the national polls. The NAIA Preseason Top 25 poll, released Thursday, has the Oaks listed in the "receiving votes" category. Among Golden State Athletic Conference teams, the Oaks are the third-highest team.

The Oaks made strides in 2018, and figure to be on the rise in 2019. After a pair of All-GSAC runners in 2018 (Benjamin Ronoh, Logan Pine), the Oaks return their complete lineup and add several high-level recruits. Jacob Kipyego comes to the Oaks from Kapsabet, Kenya and figures to compete for All-GSAC honors while senior Noble Boutin returns for his fourth year and also figures to be a factor. Add freshmen Tristan Guerrero and Andrew Abbey and Menlo could makes waves.

After claiming the 2018 GSAC championship, The Master's University begins the year as the top-ranked team in the conference, improving seven spots to open 2019 ranked 13th overall. Westmont College enters the rankings at No. 21.

Among other teams, No. 4 Southern Oregon and No. 24 Oregon Tech are both entered, along with Menlo, in the Humboldt Invitational on Friday, September 6, hosted by Humboldt State.
