The women’s XC team finished off its season with a bang, placing 14th out of 32 teams at the NCAA Division III Championship in Cleveland this past Saturday, Nov. 21. Captain Ravenna Neville ’10 received All-American honors, placing 22nd out of 280 runners with a time of 22:37.2 over the 6k course. The sixth Cardinal woman to place in the top 35 for All-American honors, Neville led the team in its third showing at Nationals to equal the highest finish made by the team in 2004. Second among the Cardinals, and a strong new addition to the team, Julia Mark ’13 (first on the left), came in 70th with a time of 23:19.8.
Neville (third from the right) on the team’s accomplishment:
“I’m really proud of our 14th finish– we finished fourth for our region and ran through tough conditions. Six of our seven members had never been [to Nationals] before, and it’s really exciting to see the future of this team.”
