WASHINGTON, DC - The University of the District of Columbia has just released its 2018 women's cross country schedule. The Firebirds will be competing in six meets, culminating with the East Coast Conference Cross Country Championship hosted by Roberts Wesleyan College in Rochester, NY in November.

Joel Phillip, head women's cross country coach spoke today on the upcoming season.

"I am very excited for the upcoming season," he said. "Our team consists mainly of sprinters, but they are all hard workers who compete to the best of their abilities. I believe we will do great, and we will get the work that we need done with cross country to serve its purpose."

The Firebirds will be looking to improve on last year's performance as they finished eighth in last year's ECC Championship meet.
