Ruck Shares ACC Cross Country Performer-of-the-Week Honors

Sept. 20, 2010

CLEMSON, SC – Kim Ruck of the women’s cross country team was named Co-ACC Performer-of-the-Week on Monday after winning the individual title over the weekend at the Clemson Invitational. She led the Tigers to an easy team victory at the event and set a personal best in the 5K as well.

Ruck, a native of Greer, SC, shared the weekly honor with freshman Laura Hoerr of NC State. The Tigers’ junior standout produced an outstanding time of 16:47.09 and easily dominated the field, winning by greater than 51 seconds over her closest competitor. Clemson took the team championship with a total of 22 points, 42 more than runner-up Charlotte.

She now owns two individual victories in her cross country career. Ruck won the Charlotte Invitational last season, and it is the same meet Clemson has next on its 2010 schedule. Ruck was All-ACC and all-region in cross country last season, and an All-American during indoor track season as well.
