Nov. 20, 2004

CLEMSON, SC – Itay Magidi and Derrick Wyatt are set to represent Clemson at the NCAA Cross Country Championships on Monday, Nov. 22. The 2004 national meet will be held in Terre Haute, IN, and hosted by Indiana State University.

Wyatt, a senior from Liberty, SC, is making his first trip to the NCAA meet after finishing fifth at the region meet with a career-best 10K time of 30:19.2.
