GW Women's Cross Country Finishes 10th at A-10 Championship
Porter Earns All-Conference Honors
PITTSBURGH - Sophomore Macaulay Porter finished in 15th-place overall out of 126 competitors to lead the George Washington women's cross country team to a 10th-place finish at Saturday's Atlantic 10 Championship at Schenley Park.
GW totaled 254 points to secure 10th place for the second time in three years. Duquesne won the Atlantic 10 Championship with 58 points, followed by La Salle (111), Richmond (112), Saint Louis (131), Davidson (133), UMass (134), George Mason (203), Rhode Island (225), Dayton (242), GW, Fordham (272), St. Bonaventure (287), St. Joseph's (321) and VCU (352).
Porter becomes the second GW harrier in the past two years to earn All-Conference honors after navigating the 5,000-meter course in 18:16.30. It marks the sophomore's third consecutive top finish for the Colonials after taking fourth place at the George Mason Invitational and 29th at the Princeton Invitational.
Porter was joined in the top-30 by freshman Miranda DiBiasio who finished in 28th-place in first collegiate 5K, registering a time of 18:39.90. The Berea, Ohio, native has enjoyed a standout rookie campaign with Saturday marking her fifth top-30 finish of the season.
GW's 10th-place finish equals the best finish under fourth-year head coach Terry Weir. The Colonials also finished in 10th place in 2013, led by then-senior Heather Stevens' All-Conference performance.
GW will return to action at the NCAA Mid-Atlantic Regional on November 14 in State College, Pennsylvania.
