The Embry-Riddle women’s cross country team earned its seventh consecutive Cal Pac Championship and NAIA National Championship appearance last season, and are on track to do so again in 2022. The Eagles are ranked 13th in the preseason coach’s poll, one spot up from its position in the 2021 postseason poll.
The Eagles finished 14th at the national championships, and were the only Cal Pac team to qualify. Embry-Riddle had an All-American last season, with the now-graduated Ariana Anderson earning her third consecutive nod.
The Eagles are returning a strong squad and adding new talent as well. ERAU has eight runners coming back from last season, and added four runners to the group.
Embry-Riddle is the only Cal Pac team to be ranked in the poll. Defending national champions Milligan are ranked in the top spot.
