CHESTNUT HILL, Mass. - The Boston College women's cross country team will be hosting the Coast-to-Coast Battle in Beantown - BC XC Invite this Friday, Sept. 27. The meet will be held at Franklin Park in Boston, with the women's 5k race starting at 3:30 p.m. and the men's 8k race starting at 4:15 p.m.
"We're really excited to host this competition," said head coach Randy Thomas. "On the women's side we have 15 teams, three of the top nine teams in the country - Providence one, Oregon three, Cornell nine - so this is a great opportunity for us. Wisconsin women are coming in, they're ranked top four in their region, so it's a great opportunity for out-of-region points for at-large criteria for qualification into the NCAA [Championships]."
Boston College is currently ranked 24th in the country, as announced by the USTFCCCA NCAA Division I National Cross Country Coaches' Poll on Sept. 23.
