Cross Country to Open 2018 at South Carolina Saturday

CLEMSON, S.C. – The Clemson men’s and women’s cross country teams are set to open the 2018 season at the Carolina Challenge Saturday, hosted by South Carolina.

“Our expectations remain the same for both teams,” said Clemson head coach Mark Elliott. “Our women will be more experienced because we are adding two All-ACC performers [on the track] in Logan Morris and Kamryn McIntosh to our roster. On the men’s side, the team lost a big contributor in James Quattlebaum due to graduation, but our returners will be more experienced, so our expectation is to build off of last season.”

The Tigers are back in action this fall for the 63rd season in program history on the men’s side, and 41st season for the women’s program. The upcoming season will also serve as the 40th anniversary for the women’s team as an ACC program as the first-ever women’s championship was held in 1978 in Winston-Salem, North Carolina.
