Furman Women Move Up To 15th In USTFCCCA National Poll; Paladin Men Ranked 32nd

GREENVILLE, S.C. -- The Furman women's cross country team moved up one spot to 15th in the week 7 U.S. Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association (USTFCCCA) poll, while the Paladin men are ranked 32nd, according to the national rankings released Tuesday.  

The Paladin women, who won their sixth-straight Southern Conference Championship last month, finished second Saturday at the NCAA Southeast Regional, earning an automatic bid to the NCAA Championships, which will be held Saturday in Madison, Wis.  The women's race will begin at 10:45 a.m. CT, followed by the men's race at 11:45 a.m. CT.

Furman placed three women on the All-Southeast Region team, including junior Savannah Carnahan, who earned her third-straight all-region citation after leading the Paladins with a third-place finish and a time of 19:54.4 on the 6K course.  Carnahan was joined on the all-region team by juniors Emma Grace Hurley and Gabbi Jennings.  Hurley, who captured her second all-region nod, turned in a time of 20:17.8 for 11th place, while Jennings, who was honored with her second-consecutive all-region selection, finished 16th with a time of 20:24.9.

The Furman men, who also claimed their sixth-straight league title, finished fourth at the region meet on Friday.  Senior Aaron Templeton paced the Paladins on the 10K course with a time of 29:31.3, finishing third and qualifying automatically for the NCAA Championships.  Along with Templeton, who earned his third all-region citation, junior Ryan Adams and sophomore Daniel Bernal also placed among the top-25 to claim all-region honors.  Adams, who finished eighth with a time of 30:10.7, was named to the all-region team for the second time in his career, while Bernal posted an 18th place finish at 30:28.8 to earn his first career all-region selection.
