ANNAPOLIS, Md. – Aiming to tie its second-longest winning streak against Army West Point in the 24-meet division I era, the Navy women’s cross country team will look to win its fifth-straight Star Meet versus the Black Knights on Friday (4 PM) at West Point, New York.
Senior Kelley Robinson took home her first career individual title, as she helped lead the Navy women’s cross country team past Army, 26-29, in last season’s dual meet. Robinson held the lead for the entire race and crossed the tape first with a time of 22:25.82. The senior runner has finished in the top three in the last three Army-Navy meets.
Head coach Karen Boyle has led Navy to a 15-9 record in division I against Army and has guided the Mids to a 4-1 record at West Point in the last five meets. Navy has had much success in West Point, defeating Army by at least seven points or more and recorded a perfect score of 15 to 48 in 2008.
Navy jumped one spot to eighth in the USTFCCCA Mid-Atlantic Regional poll this week. The Mids finished ahead 12 regional foes, including seven Patriot League schools, in the Paul Short Run to earn the jump.
Following Friday’s Star Meet, Navy will have an extra week to prepare for the Patriot League Championship on Saturday, Oct. 31, which is hosted by Colgate.
