Women #10, Men #16 in Pre-Season Cross Country Poll


The pre-season NCAA Division I Cross Country poll predicts a slight step-back for both the Villanova women's (#3 nationally in the final 2011 rankings) and men's (#13 in 2011) teams. The Villanova women, absent both their 2011 #1 and #2 harriers, are pre-season ranked #10 nationally, and #3 in the Mid-Atlantic region. The Villanova men, who have to replace Matt Gibney, Keith Capecci, and Ryan Sheridan, appear at #16 nationally and #2 in the region. Both squads have added new pieces to the mix and the battle for the top-7 should be interesting indeed.
