Bulldog Cross Country Set to Host the 2012 Southern Conference Championship Race
Charleston, S.C. – The Citadel men's and women's cross country teams will host the Southern Conference Championship race on Saturday at its home course of Laurel Hill Plantation. The women's race is slated to begin at 10 a.m. followed by the men's 8k at 10:45.
This will be the 83rd annual cross country championship for the men and the 28th for the women. The 2011 championship ended with the UNC Greensboro men and women claiming both team titles. UNCG's Paul Chelimo and Ashley Schnell won both individual titles.
Danielle McKee led all Bulldog runners at last year's championship race with a personal-best time of 18:09, while Kyle Keene recorded a season-best time of 25:19 at Trophy Lakes on Johns Island, S.C. The men's team finished the race in ninth place, while the women took 12th.
Keene has continued to impress this season as the senior captain has finished in the top 10 in each of his three races, including a first place finish at the Bulldog Invitational on Sept. 29. McKee will look to continue her streak of 17 straight races in which she was the top individual finisher for The Citadel.
