2019 FloXC Countdown: #17 Florida Women

Follow our 2019 FloXC Countdown, where FloTrack ranks the top 25 cross country teams and individuals in the NCAA this season which will be LIVE on FloTrack. And, be sure to watch our LIVE FloXC Podium Reveal Show Monday, August 26th at 10 AM CT. The No. 17 women’s spot goes to Florida, and here's why:

Probable Top Five:

SR Jessica Pascoe (15:34 5K; 34:08 10K; 32nd at ’18 NCAA XC)

SR Elisabeth Bergh (4:42 Mile; 16:57 5K; 123rd at ’18 NCAA XC)

SO Imogen Barrett (2:05 800; 4:17 1500; 183th at ’18 NCAA XC) 

SO Grace Blair (241st at ’18 NCAA XC)

SO Gabrielle Wilkinson (2:04 800; 245th at ’18 NCAA XC)

Impact Freshmen/Transfers:

Payton Capes-Davis via Bucknell (17:27 5K)

Emily Culley via Tallahassee, FL (10:42 3200; 85th at ’18 NXN)

Analysis:

The Florida women are coming off a breakout year last season where they finished 16th as a team led by All-American Jessica Pascoe. And, after strong spring seasons the Chris Solinsky led Gators will look to replicate their performance. Pascoe returns for her senior season after qualifying for Nationals in the indoor and outdoor 5ks in 2019. Imogen Barrett completed a great freshman season winning the SEC 1500m and being the only freshman to qualify for the NCAA outdoor 1500m. Similarly, Gabrielle Wilkinson was the only freshman to qualify for the NCAA outdoor 800m.

Rounding out the roster will be senior Elisabeth Bergh and incoming freshmen/transfers Payton Capes-Davis from Bucknell University and Emily Culley a prep from Tallahassee, Florida.
