Converse Cross Country wins Lees McRae Invitational
Banner Elk, NC – On the back on their highest ever NCAA Regional ranking, the Converse Cross Country team powered through a difficult course to lead all teams with 37 points and win the Lees McRae Invitational.
Mary Cloonan (Spartanburg, SC) would win the race after an impressive beginning to the race which was virtually straight uphill for the first mile. She would establish an unassailable lead and eventually win the race by 18 seconds from the next runner.
The All-Stars return to action this Saturday as they face a stern test at the Belmont Abbey Invitational at 9am in Charlotte, NC.
