Women's Cross Country - Wed, Oct. 3, 2012

KANSAS CITY, MO (10/3) Four days after a solid race at the Greater Louisville Classic, the Cornerstone University Women's Cross Country team climbed to 14th in the NAIA national rankings.

As the largest Cross Country meet in the United States this year, the Greater Louisville Classic provided the ideal stage as the Golden Eagles finished as the top NAIA team. Nearly 150 colleges participated, representing all three NCAA divisions, the NAIA and JUCO programs.

The raters rewarded their efforts, moving Cornerstone up for the third straight week. Last week the women stood 15th on the NAIA list, matching their highest positions from 2009 and 2000. Today's move to 14th marked the highest ranking since the program began in 1990.

"I don't want it to be a big deal," said senior captain, Julia Contreras. "This is what we were supposed to do.  I don't want us to be comfortable just because we're moving up."

Friday, October 5 the women face conference rival, Aquinas currently ranked 9th at the Michigan Intercollegiate Championships. Hosted by Calvin College this year, the race takes place at 4:45 p.m. at the Gainey Athletic Complex.
