NEW ORLEANS – The U.S. Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association (USTFCCCA) announced the week one regional cross country polls Wednesday Sept. 22, with the Georgia College & State University women hanging on to the No. 9 spot.

Georgia College has placed third in two races thus far in the young 2010 fall season. Senior Dani Destiche (Snellville, Ga.) led the way for the Bobcats in both races, finishing seventh in the Bobcat Classic with a time of 21:37 and finishing ninth in Mercer’s RunFit Invitational with a time of 20:40. 

The top three remain the same with Peach Belt Conference (PBC) champions Columbus State University taking top honors in the Southeast Region. Queens University (N.C.) and Lenoir-Rhyne University (N.C.) round off the top three, with PBC foe Augusta State University falling to No. 5. 

The Georgia College Department of Athletics, back-to-back winners of the PBC Commissioner's Cup, sponsors 10 varsity athletic programs at the NCAA Division II level. As a Division II program, Bobcat Athletics prides itself on balancing the life of the student-athlete, evidenced by the teams' multiple appearances in post-season competition as well as documented academic success and community-service involvement.
