GW Women's Cross Country Earns Second-Ever Regional Ranking
Colonials Ranked No. 12 in Mid-Atlantic Region
WASHINGTON - The George Washington women's cross country team has earned its second-ever regional ranking from the United States Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association (USTFCCCA) after appearing at No. 12 in this week's Mid-Atlantic Regional Poll.
The Colonials first appeared in the poll in the final regional rankings of the 2012 regular season when they were No. 15 in the Mid-Atlantic Region.
GW is off to a hot start across the first two weeks of the season. The Colonials went 5-1 at the season-opening Mount St. Mary's Duals on September 4 before tying for first place at this past weekend's Salty Dog Invitational.
The Colonials have totaled six top-10 finishes across the first two meets and sophomore Miranda DiBiasio became GW's first race winner since 2013 when she won the 6,000-meter Salty Dog Invitational on Saturday at the United States Naval Academy.
Other Atlantic 10 teams currently regionally ranked are Duquesne (8th, Mid-Atlantic) and Richmond (14th, Southeast).
USTFCCCA Regional Cross Country Rankings are determined subjectively by a single member coach in each respective region. The regional representative is tasked with weighting returning teams' strength and current season results (if applicable) in determining predicted team finishes at the NCAA Regional Championships.
