Women’s Cross Country

The women’s Cross Country team, like the men’s, will be coached by John Evans.

“The women will really surprise people this year,” Coach Evans predicted.

“While unranked in the pre-season poll, I think we have the potential to qualify for nationals and be a top 10 team in the country.”

Marie Lemay and Grayce Selig, both ‘11, whose depth should help the team reach their goal of a national ranking, will lead the team. Selig and Lemay were two of the most consistent competitors last year, including finishing one-two against Bentley in the season opener. Lemay also finished 41st out of 313th at the New England Division III Championships last fall, allowing the team to finish 13th out of 39.

The women will start their season Friday September 4 against Bentley at Weston High School at 3 PM. Bentley finished fourth in the NCAA Division II Regionals in 2008 and had one athlete, Melissa Nash ’09, compete in Nationals where she finished 63rd.
