COLLEGE PARK, MD – The Clemson women’s cross country team finished second at the Pre-ACC Meet hosted by the University of Maryland on Saturday. The Terrapins won the meet with 27 points, while the Lady Tigers finished second with 48 points. Howard tallied 78 points for third place, Maryland-Eastern Shore was fourth with 104 points and Coppin State rounded out the field with 136 points.

Casey Phillips led the Lady Tigers with a third-place finish and time of 24:29.31 over the 6300-yard course. Jennifer Barton took fifth place with a time of 25:11.31 and Sudati Masasu crossed the finish line in 26:12.86 for 10th place. Patrice McMillan finished 14th with a time of 26:51.22 and Laura Ann Rukat completed the race with a time of 27:13.68 for 16th place.

“This was a tough, long course but I am pleased with our results,” said assistant coach AuDrey Branch. “It was encouraging for the team to run on what will be the ACC Championships course, and to have the opportunity to familiarize themselves with it. I know we will improve on this performance at the conference meet, and as the course is shortened to a 6K, that will also be in our favor. I think the best performances are yet to come from this team.”
