NEW ORLEANS, La. - The Dickinson women's cross country team climbed two spots to No. 7 in the newest U.S. Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association National Poll as announced by the organization this week.
The Red Devils earned 282 points to claim their spot after coming off back-to-back wins in the Galen Piper Cross Country Challenge and The Little Three Championship last Friday night at Dickinson Park.
Seniors Isabel Cardi and Elaina Clancy have been leading the charge for DC placing first and second in consecutive races. The Red Devils have shown off a nice mix of depth getting solid contributions from first-years Maddie Garber and Amiyah Priebe, as well as graduate students Allyson Yanega and Sarah Yanega.
In addition to their national ranking, Dickinson is second in the Mid-Atlantic Region falling just behind fellow Centennial Conference institution and No. 1 team in the nation Johns Hopkins University. The rest of the Top-5 in the region includes Carnegie Mellon, Elizabethtown, and Misericordia.
