Cross Country Teams Appear in Preseason Rankings

Women's and Men's Cross Country

The Geneseo Blue Knights appeared in the preseason Atlantic Region rankings as released by the United States Track and Field and Cross Country Coaches Association (USTFCCCA). The men's team ranked second in the region behind New York University, while the women were second to St. Lawrence in the first rankings of the season.

The Geneseo men finished a program-best sixth last year at the NCAA Division III championships and return four of their top seven runners, including junior Lee Berube, the defending SUNYAC individual champion.

On the women's side, Geneseo returns four of the top seven to the team that finished ninth at the NCAA Division III championships, but must contend with the graduation of SUNYAC individual champion, Sandra Goettelman.
