For the first time in program history, the George Washington women's cross country has garnered a regional ranking in the latest edition of the United States Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association (USTFCCCA) Mid-Atlantic Regional Poll.

The Colonials are currently ranked 15th in the poll, which includes Atlantic 10 rivals La Salle (7th), Duquesne (9th) and Saint Joseph's (14th). Also ranked are local rivals Georgetown (1st), Navy (6th) and Maryland (12th).

GW used a 13th-place finish (out of 28 teams) at last weekend's Princeton Invitational to vault into the regional rankings. As a team, the Colonials have registered one top-five and two top-10 finishes this season.

The Colonials have next weekend off as they prepare for the Atlantic 10 Championships on October 27 at Philadelphia's Belmont Plateau at Fairmount Park.

GW finished in 11th-place at last year's A-10 Championship while its highest finish at the event came in 1997 when the Colonials took fifth-place at nearby Bull Run Park in Centerville, Va.
