Oct. 20, 2010

PROVIDENCE, R.I. - The latest national rankings from the U.S. Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association place the Providence College women's cross country team 13th in the nation. Last week, the Friars were 16th.

Providence moved up in the poll thanks to a strong performance at the Pre-Nationals in Terre Haute, Ind. on Saturday (October 16). The team placed fourth out of a field of 38 teams in the "Blue" event, scoring 231 points. The winners from Florda State scored 115.

PC was paced by sophomore Shelby Greany (Suffern, N.Y.) who completed the 6000-meter endeavor in sixth place individually (out of 261 runners.) Her time of 20:29.3 was just 26 seconds behind race victor Risper Kimaiyo of UTEP.

Greany was backed by junior Hannah Davidson (Saratoga Springs, N.Y.; 16th place, 20:40.4), junior Mary Kate Champagne (Plattsburg, N.Y.; 53rd, 21:20.5), sophomore Sam Roecker (Charlton, N.Y.; 72nd, 21:27.7) and senior Emma Perron (84th, 21:32.5).

Both the Friar women and men will compete this Friday (October 22) in the Central Connecticut State Mini Meet in New Britain, Conn. The women will start at 3:30 p.m. The men run at 4 p.m.
