WATERVILLE, Maine --- The Colby College women’s cross country team is headed back to the NCAA Division III Championships after receiving an at-large bid Sunday.

The Mules finished fourth in the NCAA New England Region Qualifier on Saturday. The Mules will be one of 32 teams competing at the NCAA meet. Fifty-six individuals who were not a part of a qualifying team also will compete.

Hanover College in Indiana will host the championship this Saturday at the L.S. Ayres Complex in Hanover. The women’s race will be run at noon (Eastern time).

Colby finished 11th in the country at last year’s national meet. The Mules finished fifth after the 2004 and 2005 seasons. Colby, under head coach Deb Aitken, has qualified for the NCAA meet in eight of the last 15 years.
