2022 NCAA DIII Women’s Cross Country Regional Rankings – Week 7

NEW ORLEANS – The postseason is rolling along!

Here is the newest edition of the NCAA Division III Women’s Cross Country Regional Rankings for the 2022 season, as released on Tuesday by the U.S. Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association (USTFCCCA).

Regional Rankings are determined subjectively by a single member coach in each respective region. The regional representative is tasked with weighing returning teams’ strength with current season results (if applicable) in determining a rank-order of squad potential. Only USTFCCCA member programs are eligible to receive a ranking. Teams with provisional status within the region may be ranked.

Regional Championships Saturday is set for November 12.

East Region

Projected AQ: No. 1 MIT

Next in Line: No. 2 Bates

Also in the Hunt: No. 3 Tufts, No. 4 Bowdoin, No. 5 WPI

Great Lakes Region

Projected AQ: No. 1 Hope

Next in Line: No. 2 Calvin

Also in the Hunt: No. 3 Trine, No. 4 John Carroll, No. 5 Centre

Note: Hope leapfrogged Calvin into the top spot of the Great Lakes Region by virtue of its head-to-head victory – and title-winning performance – at the MIAA Championships. The Flying Dutch scored 39 points, 11 fewer than the Knights. Trine finished third at that meet.

Metro Region

Projected AQ: No. 1 Widener

Next in Line: No. 2 TCNJ

Also in the Hunt: No. 3 Swarthmore, No. 4 Stockton, No. 5 Ursinus

Mid-Atlantic Region

Projected AQ: No. 1 Johns Hopkins

Next in Line: No. 2 Dickinson

Also in the Hunt: No. 3 Scranton, No. 4 Elizabethtown, No. 5 Carnegie Mellon

Mideast Region

Projected AQ: No. 1 Williams

Next in Line: No. 2 Amherst

Also in the Hunt: No. 3 Smith, No. 4 RPI, No. 5 St. Lawrence

Midwest Region

Projected AQ: No. 1 UChicago

Next in Line: No. 2 Wartburg

Also in the Hunt: No. 3 St. Olaf, No. 4 UW-Eau Claire, No. 5 Saint Benedict

Note: Carleton made quick work of the MIAC Championships this past weekend, scoring just 27 points as it put four runners in the top-5. That was more than enough to topple St. Olaf and St. Benedict, both top-5 teams in the North Region. UW-La Crosse won the WIAC crown.

South Region

Projected AQ: No. 1 Lynchburg

Next in Line: No. 2 Washington & Lee

Also in the Hunt: No. 3 Emory, No. 4 Christopher Newport, No. 5 Meredith
