COLUMBIA, S.C.- The Gamecocks faced both highs and lows during their meet today at the College of Charleston Inivitational in Charleston, S.C.
South Carolina’s Jenny Lake was the high point, as she set the Dixie Plantation course record in winning the race with a time of 19:05. Injuries were the low point as the Gamecocks number two runner, Lauren Paige, was unable to finish the race do to injury, and Mary Claire finished the race despite rolling her ankle.
“Jenny ran very well today,” commented Coach Stan Rosenthal. “Kinsey (Eschenburg) and Shay (Shelton) also ran a good race for the team. Having two people get hurt on the course today wasn’t good for the team, but hopefully we will rebound.”
Furman took the first place honors with a score of 23, followed by Georgia Southern 54, SOUTH CAROLINA 68, College of Charleston 87, and The Citadel 137.
The Gamecocks will be back in Charleston, S.C. next Saturday to compete in The Citadel Invitational.
