Furman Women Remain 12th In USTFCCCA National Poll; 13th In Flotrack Rankings

GREENVILLE, S.C. -- The Furman women's cross country team remained in 12th place in the week 4 U.S. Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association (USTFCCCA) poll and is ranked 13th in the FloTrack poll, according to the national rankings released Tuesday.  

The Paladins, five-time defending Southern Conference Champions, finished second Friday at the Joe Piane Notre Dame Invitational in South Bend, Ind.  Furman, which returned seven of its top eight competitors from last year's team which finished seventh at the NCAA Championships, was led by junior Savannah Carnahan, the 2016 SoCon Freshman of the Year, who finished fourth with a time of 16:47.2 on the 5K course.  

Junior Gabbi Jennings, who won the individual title at the Eye Opener Meet in the Paladins' season opener, placed seventh at 16:55.5, and junior Emma Grace Hurley finished 16th with a time of 17:41.1.  Junior Riley Burr also placed among the top 25 at the meet, turning in a 24th-place finish at 17:22.0.  Sophomore Krissy Gear, the 2017 SoCon Freshman of the Year, completed the Paladin slate of scorers in 29th place with a time of 17:28.8.

The Paladins will compete at the Pre-NCAA Invitational in Madison, Wis., on Oct. 13.
