The experienced Elizabethtown College wom-en’s cross country program registered a ffth consecutive Middle Atlantic Conference Champi-onship in 2011. The success of the Elizabethtown College women’s cross country team dates back to 1998. After a period of growth, years of hard work paid off in 2004 with the program’s frst Middle Atlantic Conference championship. The success has undoubtedly continued and shows no signs of letting up heading into 2012.

The quality of the women’s cross country program has been displayed on the regional and national levels as well, where E-town placed in the top four at the NCAA Mideast Regional meet from 2004 through 2008. A sixth place fnish snapped that streak in 2009, but it was a brief hiatus from the top fve. The Blue Jays were third at the Mideast Regional Championships in both 2010 and 2011. Since 2004 the program has enjoyed 24 all-region performances. Elizabethtown has been represented at the NCAA Championships, either by the team or an individual, every year since 2003.

A total of 15 different runners have been recognized as All-Region, including four-time honoree Tiffany Kulp ’09. Kulp is also the only Blue Jay to have competed at nationals four times, running with the team in 2004, 2006 and 2007 and fnishing in the top half of the feld as an individual in 2008. Erin Fisher ’08 and Melissa St. Clair ’05 each earned All-American honors for the Blue Jays, with Fisher fnishing 15th in 2007 after winning both the MAC and Mideast Region championships.
