WASHINGTON - George Washington men's and women's cross country teams will face their largest competition fields of the season when they compete at Saturday's Paul Short Invitational in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania.
The men's 8,000-meter race begins at 11 a.m., followed by the women's 6,000-meter race at 11:45 a.m.
GW's women's team maintained its United States Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association (USTFCCCA) Mid-Atlantic Regional ranking of No. 11 this week after its first-place finish at last weekend's DCXC/GW Invitational.
The Colonials placed six harriers in the top 10 as sophomore Miranda DiBiasio paced the team with a second-place finish. She was followed by junior Macaulay Porter (4th), sophomore Lauren t'Kint de Roodenbeke (5th), junior Ariana North (6th) and the freshmen duo of Madison Yerke (7th) and Halley Brown (8th).
A number of regionally-ranked women's squads will be competing in the Paul Short Invitational this weekend. The field of 37 features six teams currently ranked in the Mid-Atlantic Region in GW, Georgetown (1st), Navy (9th), Rutgers (10th), Rider (12th) and Maryland (15th).
Additional ranked teams include Bowling Green (11th, Great Lakes), Cornell (3rd, Northeast), James Madison (15th, Southeast), South Carolina (14th, Southeast), Albany (13th, Northeast), Connecticut (11th, Northeast) and Xavier (15th, Great Lakes).
On the men's side, senior Ryan Tucker and freshman Andrew Weber were each honored with Atlantic 10 Weekly awards earlier this week after standout performances at the 5K DCXC/GW Invitational. Tucker, named the conference's Performer of the Week, finished in fourth place overall to clinch his third consecutive top GW finish while Weber, the A-10 Rookie of the Week, finished in ninth place.
GW placed second out of four teams in the team standings. Tucker and Weber, along with junior Jordan Pantalone, junior Seamus Roddy and sophomore Charles Arnold, all posted improvements on their previous 5K times.
The men's field at the Paul Short Invitational features 27 teams, including regionally-ranked institutions in Binghamton (14th, Northeast), Canisius (8th, Northeast), Georgetown (2nd, Mid-Atlantic), La Salle (14th, Mid-Atlantic), Lehigh (11th, Mid-Atlantic), Saint Joseph's (8th, Mid-Atlantic), Temple (15th, Mid-Atlantic), Tulane (14th, South Central), UMBC (7th, Mid-Atlantic) and Villanova (1st, Mid-Atlantic).'
