Cross Country Heads to Asics-Winthrop Invitational
Sept. 13, 2007
The South Carolina cross country team is back in action as it heads to Rock Hill, S.C., Sat., Sept. 15 for the Asics-Winthrop Invitational at the Winthrop Lake Course. The women's 5,000-meter race set to begin at 10 a.m. and will feature Davidson among the competition, a 2007 top-10 region team.
The Gamecocks are coming off of a third place finish two weeks ago at the Gamecock Invitational. Senior Rebecca Chain led South Carolina when she finished ninth with a time of 18:52.
"We have had good workouts following our home meet and we will be ready to race our best Saturday," Head Cross Country Coach Stan Rosenthal said.
Rosenthal will line-up the entire Gamecock varsity squad for the race. Junior Casey Gale will also race for the first time this season, coming off of a foot injury.
The Gamecocks last competed at the Asics-Winthrop Invitational in 2005 as they ran to a third-place finish.
After the Asics-Winthrop Invitational, the South Carolina cross country team will return to action Fri., Sept 21 in Charlotte, N.C. at 6 p.m.
