WASHINGTON - The Georgetown cross country program traveled to Princess Anne, Md., today for the NCAA Mid-Atlantic Regional Championship slated for Saturday, November 12 at the UMES Cross Country Course on the campus of the University of Maryland Eastern Shore. The men's 10,000-meter race is scheduled to start at noon while the women's 6,000-meter race is slated for 1:15 p.m.

The women's team, ranked second in the Mid-Atlantic Region according to the latest U.S. Track & Field / Cross Country Coaches Association (USTFCCCA) rankings behind fellow BIG EAST institution and 2010 NCAA Team Champion Villanova. The Blue & Gray are led by seven-time All-American and 2010 NCAA Cross Country Runner-Up Emily Infeld (University Heights, Ohio/Beaumont) who has competed in just two races this season in the Pre-National Meet and the BIG EAST Conference Championship. Infeld led the Hoyas to a third-place finish at the league championship as she finished fifth with a time of 20:02.2. All-American Emily Jones (Harvard, Mass./Bromfield) will also play an integral role for the women as she took 13th at the conference championship. The Hoyas will rely on their depth to compete in the elite field.

The Georgetown men will be led by Mark Dennin (Gilbertsville, Pa./Boyerstown) and graduate student Alex Lundy (Littleton, Colo./Heritage/Maryland) to lead the team. The duo helped lead GU to a second-place finish at the BIG EAST Conference Championships two weekends ago. Dennin took seventh place in the race while Lundy finished 15th overall. The Hoyas will look to the experience of veterans Andrew Springer (Westerly, R.I./Westerly) and T.C. Lumbar (Edina, Minn./Edina) while also utilizing one of the most-highly touted incoming classes in the region.
