2011 Preview: Women's Cross Country


West Windsor, N.J. -- In just its second year as a collegiate program (after a 20-year hiatus), MCCC women's cross country has the numbers to score as a team this season. Wtih just two women competing for Mercer last year, six students have been training with Head Coach Erin Cahill this summer.

Cahill is excited to have the numbers she needs for the team to score in meets. "Last year helped lay the foundation for future seasons. We have a good group and I'm looking forward to seeing how we match up against other NJCAA schools."

Coach Cahill is expecting freshman Sierra Downs (Hamilton Square, NJ/Steinert) to be at the head of the pack, followed by freshmen Anajae Register (Trenton, NJ/Allentown), Jaqueline Goncalves (Pennington, NJ/Brazil) and Charlay Dingle (Trenton, NJ/Trenton). Vitoria Lorenzetti (Princeton, NJ/Brazil), who spent the summer in her native Brazil, is also expected to run for the Lady Vikings along with another Brazilian, Simone Cioccari (Princeton, NJ/Brazil).

"It's hard to say where the girls are competitively until that first meet. They've been working out hard, but it's just so different when the gun goes off and you're running against other schools," Cahill observes.

Cahill will not have to wait much longer. The Lady Vikings will compete in their first meet Saturday, Sept. 3 at Delaware Valley College.
