HANOVER, N.H. - The Dartmouth women's cross country team will venture westward this weekend to run at the Pre National Invitational hosted by Indiana State in Terre Haute, Ind. The Big Green will take to the same 6K course on Sunday that will be used in November for the National Championships.
After a fifth-place showing at New Englands last weekend in Boston by the team's 'second seven', Dartmouth will be back out on the course with some of its top runners Sunday at 11:40 a.m. on the LeVern Gibson Championship Cross Country Course at the Wabash Valley Family Sports Center.
Sophomore Abbey D'Agostino (Topsfield, Mass.) will highlight the Big Green's contingent this weekend after not competing at Franklin Park. D'Agostino has been the team's top finisher in each race she has run in this season, winning the Dartmouth Invitational to open the season and placing fourth at the Paul Short meet two weeks ago.
Dartmouth currently ranks fifth in the Northeast Region and is receiving votes in the national poll released by the U.S. Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association (USTFCCCA).
