Women’s Cross Country Ranked 15th in Southeast Region

Oct. 16, 2007

Clemson, SC – The women’s cross country team is listed 15th in the Southeast Region according to the USTFCCCA (U.S. Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association) rankings released Tuesday. The Lady Tigers are coming off a runner-up team finish at the Furman Invitational last Saturday.

Clemson is one of seven teams from the Atlantic Coast Conference ranked in the Southeast Region. Virginia Tech is ranked #1 in this week’s regional rankings.

The second-place showing in Greenville, SC over the weekend was the best finish for the Clemson women’s program at the Furman Invitational under the watch of eighth-year Head Coach Marcia Noad. The previous best performance under Noad at Furman came in 2005, when Clemson finished third in the team standings.

The runner-up spot at Furman was the best for the program since the 1994 squad also came in second place. Clemson does have a team title in its history at the Furman Invitational, a victory for Wayne Coffman in his first year as head coach in 1984.

This season, Clemson has accumulated two team titles and a top-five finish in each of its five meets. The Lady Tigers won the Pirate Invitational at East Carolina on September 29 and the Seahawk Invitational at UNC-Wilmington on September 7. The Lady Tigers were fourth at both the Gamecock Invitational and Commodore Classic.

The next meet for the women’s cross country team will be the ACC Championships on Saturday, October 27 in Charlottesville, VA. The Southeast Region Championships will be held November 10 in Louisville, KY.
