DBU Women’s Cross Country Ninth in Polls

Filed under: Sports |

The Lady Patriot Cross Country team is ranked 9th in the latest USTFCCCA Regional Poll. This ranking comes after the Lady Patriots won the Rogue Running/Grass Routes Run Festival DII Race this past weekend in Austin, Texas.

The Lady Patriots are off from competition this week but will be back in action at the University of Arkansas Chile Pepper Festival on October 13th. Following the Chile Pepper Festival the Lady Patriots will look to win their sixth consecutive Heartland Conference Cross Country Championship.

“It’s nice to finally get a ranking,” said head coach Jacob Phillips, “But it’s still not the one we’re looking for. We need to be top five on November 3rd at the Regional Championships to get to Nationals. That’s our goal and that’s what we’re peaking for.”
