GW Women's Cross Country Runs to Seventh Place at Princeton Invite
Colonials Outperform Pair of Mid-Atlantic Foes in Final Race Ahead of A-10 Championship
PRINCETON, N.J. - The regionally-ranked George Washington women's cross country team placed three harriers in the top-50 en route to a seventh place finish out of 24 teams at the Princeton Invitational on Saturday morning at the West Windsor Fields.
GW, ranked No. 10 in the latest United States Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association (USTFCCCA) Mid-Atlantic Regional Poll, outperformed a pair of higher-ranked opponents in the region in Navy (8th, Mid-Atlantic) and Princeton (3rd, Mid-Atlantic).
The Colonials were also the second-highest Atlantic 10 squad in the team standings on Saturday, finishing ahead of La Salle (9th place) and Saint Joseph's (10th place) and behind Duquesne (4th place).
GW's top-three performers were all separated by 20 seconds. Junior Macaulay Porter led the Colonials with a 25th-place finish after completing the 6,000-meter course in 22:04.3. Ten seconds later, junior Ariana North crossed the finish line in 22:14.80 for 34th place. Sophomore Miranda DiBiasio followed 10 seconds behind North in 22:24.50 for 38th place.
GW will be idle next weekend in preparation for the Atlantic 10 Championship on October 31 at Pole Green Park in Mechanicsville, Virginia.
