WASHINGTON - The Georgetown University women's cross country team enters the 2013 season ranked No. 6 in the nation, while the Hoyas men's team is ranked No. 25 in the preseason coaches' poll released by the U.S. Track & Field and Country Coaches Association (USTFCCCA).

The national poll ranked the Georgetown women sixth in the country with 283 points, with Providence first, followed by Florida State, Oregon, Duke and Washington.

On the men's side, the Hoyas were ranked 25th, receiving 110 points and were the top-ranked team in the BIG EAST Conference. Georgetown returns graduate student Andrew Springer (Westerly, R.I./Westerly), who was the team's top finisher at the NCAA Championships last year, as well as junior Miles Schoedler (Ocean View, N.J./Ocean View), sophomore Darren Fahy (Carsbad, Calif./La Costa Canyon) and junior John Murray (Shrewsbury, Mass./Shrewsbury).
