Central College has cracked the Division III women’s cross country regional rankings as the Dutch are No. 8 in the Central Region in the rankings produced by the U.S. Track and Field and Cross Country Coaches Association. Iowa Conference rival Wartburg College is No. 1, Luther College is No. 5 and Loras College is No. 10. Central is off to a strong start. The Dutch took first place in the six-team Central Dutch Invitational Sept. 5. Last Saturday at the St. Olaf Invitational, first-year coach Joe Dunham’s squad was fourth in a 16-team field and second among NCAA Division III schools.
