Princeton Women In The Top 10, Again

Posted: 31 August by Brett Hoover in Princeton, Women

The U.S. Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association has announced its preseason cross country rankings and the Princeton women are ranked seventh in the nation and second in the Mid-Atlantic region behind only Villanova, the nation’s unanimous No. 1 team. The 2009 Orange & Black claimed fifth nationally at the NCAA Championships in Indiana.

On the men’s side, the Tigers were edged by Cal Poly for the final spot in the top 30 with only two Mid-Atlantic teams — Georgetown and Villanova — in front of them. Additionally among the men, all six teams in the Northeast are ranked among the top 10 in the geographic region. Coming in at fourth, the Columbia Lions are the top-rated Ivy squad in the Northeast, followed by Conell and Dartmouth.

The Harvard women — also ranked fourth in the Northeast — are the top-ranked Heps squad in the region with Columbia and Cornell following behind.

The cross country season gets underway in less than two weeks with Cornell visiting Army, Dartmouth hosting Yale and others at its invitational, Penn at the Fordham Fiasco in Van Cortlandt Park, Princeton at Penn State’s Spiked Shoe Invitational and Columbia visiting Vermont.
