Patriots compete in Royals XC Challenge
Junior Sarah Harris led a trio of Francis Marion University cross country runners that finished back-to-back-to-back as the Patriots placed fifth at Friday’s (Oct. 9) Royals XC Challenge. Hampered by injuries, the FMU men recorded only four finishers and did not post a team score.
The two races were run at the Hodges Family Farm in Charlotte.
Harris finished the 5,600-meter course in 26:47 and placed 31st. FMU sophomore Angela Kasitz was next across the finish line in 27:21 and freshman Molly Moss was 33rd with a time of 27:26.
Patriot freshmen Annalena Griffin (29:16) and Ina Marie Sullivan (30:44) placed 35th and 39th respectively.
