Women finish seventh at SAC Cross Country Championships
GREENEVILLE, TN -- Several records were established as the Carson-Newman women and Mars Hill men claimed the team titles at the 2005 Food Lion South Atlantic Conference Cross Country Championships held Saturday morning at the Greene Valley Development Center. The Catawba women ran to a seventh place with Rori Godsey (Washington, DC) earning second team all-conference honors.
Carson-Newman recorded 47 points, edging second place Mars Hill by one point in the narrowest margin of victory in the 13-year history of the women's championship. C-N placed four runners in the top 10 as it captures its fifth SAC title and first since 2002, the last time the championship was contested in Greeneville. MHC's Rachel Retallick finished first with a time of 19:01.52 on the 5,000-meter course to claim SAC Runner of the Year honors.
In the men's championship, Mars Hill recorded the top four runners and five of the top six as the Lions claimed their ninth consecutive SAC title. Mars Hill tied a championship record with 16 points, matching the best score which the Lions posted in 1998 SAC meet. MHC's Daniel Amick was named the SAC Runner of the Year as he won the 8,000-meter race with a course-record time of 25:44.87.
