BU cross country teams ranked in Northeast Region Preseason Poll

Complete Northeast Region Poll

VESTAL, N.Y.--For the first time since moving up to the NCAA Division I level seven years ago, Binghamton's men's and women's cross country teams are ranked in the Northeast Region Preseason Poll. The women are ranked No. 13 while the men's team checks in at No. 14.

The number of programs in the Northeast Region varies from year to year and not every squad enters the Regional Championship Meet. Last season, 34 men's teams and 36 women's squads competed at the Nov. 10 event. The Bearcats finished a program-best 16th in the women's meet and 21st in the men's race.

So far this season, the Bearcats have gotten off to a solid start. At the season-opening Baltimore Metro Cross Country meet, senior Katie Radzik and junior Chris Gaube swept the individual titles. In addition, Binghamton won the men's team title.

Other top runners for the women have been senior Jamie Schulte, sophomore Ashley Horton, freshman Ryann Cretney and senior Jennifer Hastings. On the men's side, sophomores Erik van Ingen and Andrew Ugolino, senior Adam Hill and sophomore Adam Quinn have been a part of the lead pack.

Both squads head to the Buffalo Stampede on Saturday at 11:30 a.m.
