Women's Cross Country Sits Atop Region Poll

NEW ORLEANS, LA -- The USTFCCCA released the preseason regional polls, with the Lady Bobcats picked to be the top team in the NCAA DII's Southeast Region.

The Lady Bobcats returned a wealth of experience, including five All-Conference runners and four All-Region runners.

"This is a tribute to the girls hard work last year, but we have to go out and earn it this year. We have a very talented group of women with the same hope and dreams from last year," said head coach Craig McPhail. "We aren't led by one runner, but our entire pack of runners is strong."
