The University of Notre Dame women's cross country team finished fourth at the 2004 NCAA Championship in Terre Haute, Ind., on Monday morning. The fourth-place finish is the second best in school history and the third-straight top-10 finish for head coach Tim Connelly's team.

Junior Stephanie Madia led the way with a 15th-place finish, followed by freshman Sunni Olding in 23rd and senior Kerry Meagher in 24th. Meagher was followed by Molly Huddle in 28th, Lauren King in 80th, Jean Marinangeli in 104th and Katie DeRusso in 174th.

The Irish, with 170 points, finished fourth behind Colorado (63), Duke (144) and Providence (164).

The men finished 11th, following up the 2004 season in which they missed qualifying for the national meet for the first time in 14 years.

Sophomore Kurt Benninger paced the Irish in 29th place, followed by junior Tim Moore in 30th, junior Kaleb Van Ort in 70th and junior Sean O'Donnell in 71st. Ryan Johnson was 150th, Vinnie Ambrico 183rd and AJ Andrassy 198th.

The 11th-place effort for the men's team is the best since 2001 when the team finished sixth. It also marks the 10th time in the last 12 years the Irish have finished in the top 15 at the national meet.

A full and complete recap will be posted later in the day from the competition site.
