Clemson Announces 2011 Men’s and Women’s Cross Country Schedule

July 11, 2011

CLEMSON, SC – Clemson will host the ACC Cross Country Championships for the first time since 2001, the school announced Monday when it unveiled the 2011 men’s and women’s schedule. Clemson will host the ACC meet on Oct. 29 at Musser Farms, a peach orchard that was first used for cross country in the fall of 2010.

“We are excited to host the ACC Cross Country Championships in the fall,” said Lawrence Johnson, Clemson’s Director of Track & Field and Cross Country. “This will provide an opportunity for us to continue to showcase our new cross country course. We have a schedule that will challenge our young men and women, but we believe our kids will be up to the challenge as we continue to make progress with our distance program.”

The season kicks off Friday, Sept. 2 in Spartanburg, SC at the USC Upstate Eye Opener meet. The Tigers then return to action on Friday, Sept. 16 at home for the Clemson Invitational. The meet will be held at Musser Farms for the second straight year. The course, settled on a research center located just miles from campus, was first used at the 2010 Clemson Invitational.

Clemson will face elite-level competition in a span of a month, first at the Notre Dame Invitational on Sept. 30 and then at the Wisconsin Invitational on Oct. 15. Both meets will lead up to the ACC Cross Country Championships, held Saturday, Oct. 29 on Clemson’s home course. The Tigers look to improve upon their team finishes from a year ago. Both squads return several letter winners, including all-region competitors Alyssa Kulik and Kim Ruck from the women’s team.

The NCAA Southeast Regionals will once again be held at E.P. “Tom” Sawyer Park in Louisville, KY. The meet will take place on Saturday, Nov. 12. The NCAA Cross Country Championships are set for Monday, Nov. 21 in Terre Haute, IN.
