Wesley College's Women’s Cross Country Picked 7th in CAC Preseason Poll

YORK, Pa. – Led by sophomore Dieunise Desir, the Wesley College women's cross country team has been picked to finish seventh in the 2014 Capital Athletic Conference Preseason Poll, it was announced by the league office as voted on by the head coaches on Monday morning. 

Christopher Newport and York (Pa.) both received four first place votes but the Captains edged by the Spartans by a single point to take top honors.  Mary Washington also earned a pair of first place votes to finish third, followed by Marymount and Salisbury in a tie for fourth and St. Mary's.  Following the Wolverines are Frostburg State, Southern Virginia and Penn State Harrisburg.

Desir, who set a Wesley-record with a 23:34 in the 6K at the 2013 CAC Championships, became the first Wolverine to earn All-CAC honors and run in the NCAA Regional meet.  A native of New Castle, Del., Desir also ranks among Wesley's best in the 5K.

The entire roster from last year's squad returns alongside Desir, including sophomores Shannon Moody and twins Alexus Reese and Miata Reese.  All three harriers also ran top ten times for the Wolverines a year ago while fellow sophomore Elizabeth Moyna is also back.

New to the squad this season are promising freshmen Alyson Davis and Mercedes Myrick, as well as another Desir and Reese with Milaine Desir and Kenya Reese.

Wesley opens the season on Saturday, September 13 for the Hornet Invitational I in Smyrna, Del.
