Next Competition at Heptagonals Championships

NEW HAVEN, Conn. – The Bulldogs have been consistently ranked in the top 10 for the Northeast region by the U.S. Cross Country and Track & Field Cross Country Association (USTFCCA). They currently rank seventh for the week of Oct. 18.

The Bulldogs have received a top 10 regional ranking in every weekly poll this season. They have not dipped below eighth and have been ranked as high as sixth in the region for the Oct. 4 rankings.

Iona currently ranks first in the Northeast region. Only three Ivy League schools rank above Yale in the regional polls: Dartmouth (third), Columbia (fourth), and Cornell (sixth). Harvard ranks below at eighth, while Brown ranks 12th. In the Mid-Atlantic region, Princeton ranks first, and Penn ranks sixth. 

The Bulldogs have had an impressive season so far after opening with a second-place finish at the Dartmouth Invitational and reclaiming the Harvard-Yale title. They have also proved their competitiveness at the national level with a 16th place finish at the New England Championships and an eighth-place finish at last week's Penn State National.

The Bulldogs will enter post-season at the Heptagonals Championships on Oct. 29 at Van Cortland Park in the Bronx, N.Y.
