(St. Louis, Mo.) – The Dickinson women's cross country made a huge jump in the USTFCCCA national rankings this week, breaking into the top 10 to take over the number six spot, just behind Middlebury College.

The Red Devils match their highest ranking in program history after placing five runners in the top 25 to finish just five points behind team champion Middlebury at the Connecticut College Invitational on Saturday.

Junior Sarah House (Merrimack, N.H./Merrimack) has turned in an outstanding season, setting the pace for a balanced line-up with some strong, young talent to compliment a solid corps of veteran runners. House ran to sixth overall while sophomore Emma Johnston (Pelham, N.Y./Pelham Memorial) finished eighth at Connecticut.

Sophomore Isabel Cardi (Media, Pa./Strath Haven) and junior Tessa Cassidy (Brunswick, Maine/Brunswick) turned in strong performances as well, finishing 16th and 17th with times of 22:24 and 22:25, respectively, and senior Lucile Ionescu (Maple Glen, Pa./Upper Dublin) posted a mark of 22:36 to finish 25th.

The Red Devils are off this weekend as they prepare for the Centennial Conference Championships at Haverford College on October 27.
