Ruck Finishes 90th at NCAA Cross Country Championships

Nov. 22, 2010

TERRE HAUTE, IN – Clemson junior Kim Ruck finished in 90th place at the NCAA Cross Country Championships on Monday at the LaVern Gibson Course. Ruck posted a time of 21:17.2 over the 6,000m course on a cold, windy afternoon in Indiana. It put a close on another strong season for Ruck, who earned all-region status for the second straight cross country campaign.

Ruck was in the thick of the lead pack at the one-mile mark before several runners started to make their move toward the front as the race moved up the hill at the Wabash Valley Family Sports Center. Ruck’s 90th place effort came against a field of 253 runners on Monday. It was the third time this calendar year that Ruck competed at the NCAA Championships for cross country or track. She previously earned All-America honors in March with a seventh-place finish in the 5K.

That puts a close on the 2010 cross country season. The indoor track & field season gets underway for Clemson on Saturday, Dec. 4 with the Orange & Purple Winter Classic on campus.
