Johns Hopkins wins 6th NCAA DIII women’s cross country title

Johns Hopkins used its depth to dominate once again, winning the NCAA championship for the sixth-time in program history; all six titles have come since 2012.

The Blue Jays finished with 125 points, beating second-place finisher Washington University by 13 points. That was the same Washington University that had jumped the Blue Jays in the USTFCCCA poll for the first time this season earlier in the week and had edged Johns Hopkins by a single point for the 2018 national championship.
