NEW ORLEANS – The University of New Hampshire women's cross country team is ranked 10th in this week's Northeast Region Poll that was released Monday by the U.S. Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association (USTFCCCA).
The women's side remains in the top-15 for the fifth-straight week and moves to the 10th spot after a ninth-place finish at the 40-team Paul Short Invitational on Friday. The Wildcats totaled 331 points in the College Gold race to finish first among America East teams. Freshman Laura Rose Donegan (Melbourne, Australia) continued her impressive rookie campaign as she placed 25th overall, crossing the finish line in a time of 21:00. Senior Keely Maguire (Georgetown, Mass.) raced for the first time this season and was right behind Donegan as she placed 30th overall in a time of 21:02.
New Hampshire is ranked highest of the three America East teams in this week's poll, finishing ahead of both Stony Brook (11) and Vermont (13).
The Wildcats return to action on Sunday, Oct. 7 when they take part in the New England Championships at Stanley Park in Westfield, Mass.
