WASHINGTON - George Washington men's and women's cross country teams are confirmed for four meets ahead of the 2016 Atlantic 10 Championship, head coach Terry Weir announced on Friday.

For the second straight season, the Colonials will open the 2016 season at the Mount St. Mary's Duals in Emmitsburg, Maryland. The women's team went 5-1 at the duals last season with Miranda DiBiasio notching a second-place finish out of 80 competitors. The men's team went 2-2, paced by a fifth-place finish from then-senior Ryan Tucker.

The next weekend, the Colonials will make the short trip to Annapolis, Maryland, to compete in the Navy Invitational on September 10. The women's team will run in the annual Salty Dog Invitational where DiBiasio will aim to defend her individual title. The men's team will run in the Navy Invitational and look to improve upon their fourth-place team finish from one year ago.

On Saturday, October 1, the Colonials will split each squad and head to two separate meets. Half of each team will compete at the Paul Short Invitational at Lehigh University while the rest of the teams will run at the George Mason Invitational in nearby Fairfax, Virginia.

After an idle week, GW will return to action at one of two meets on October 15. The Colonials will compete at either the Princeton Invitational in Princeton, New Jersey, or the Leopard Invitational in Easton, Pennsylvania.

The Atlantic 10 Championship returns to Pole Green Park in Richmond, Virginia, on Saturday, October 29, for the second straight season. Last season, the women's team finished in fifth place overall to tie the program's best-ever A-10 Championship team performance. The men's team was led by Tucker at last year's championship when he equaled the best individual performance in program history with a third-place finish.



The NCAA Mid-Atlantic Regional will be contested on Friday, November 11, at the Blue & White Golf Course in State College, Pennsylvania.
