Women’s cross country ready to run

Qualification is the goal for the Brandeis women’s cross-country team in 2010. Needing a top five finish to advance to nationals, the Judges finished sixth in New England regionals last season. In 2010, the Judges are looking to move up in the ranks.

The key to the team’s success may be Grayce Selig ’11, a two-time All-American. Running as an individual, Selig–the first Brandeis woman to reach nationals since 2003–placed 26th in regionals and 172nd in nationals last fall. Selig, along with Alyssa Pisarik ’12, was named All-New England in 2009.

Marie Lemay ’11, Hannah Lindholm ’11, and Emily Owen ’11, and juniors Kate Warwick ’12, Erin Bisceglia ’12, and Monique Girard ’12 are returning runners who could have a positive impact.

At last year’s regionals, Pisarik was 32nd to cross the line, while Lemay finished 43rd and Warwick 57th.

Seventh-year head coach John Evans cited Ali Kirsch ’14, Amelia Lundkvist ’14, and Victoria ’14 Sanford as freshman “to look out for.”

The ladies begin their season against Southern Maine on September 3 at Weston High School.
