UTC Women Ranked 15th In USTFCCCA South Region

Monday, September 13, 2021
The Chattanooga women’s cross country team topped Auburn in the first meet of the season and earned a spot in the USTFCCCA South Region rankings.

The Mocs, not ranked last week, entered the list at No. 15, three spots behind the Tigers. Newcomer Justine Glass led Chattanooga, placing third in the Jacksonville State Foothills Invitational last Friday. Lesley Green was just behind her in fourth place and veteran Makenzie Jones was fifth.

Emma Russum and Ashtyn Hagood followed up in 10th and 11th, helping the Mocs to a first-place finish with 33 points.
Auburn was second with 43 and North Alabama finished third with 83 points.

The Top 5 teams in the region remained the same and Chattanooga was one of three teams to enter the rankings this week including UCF in 13th and Miami (FLA) at 14th. Alabama holds onto first in the South Region followed by Ole Miss, Florida State, Georgia Tech and Tennessee.

The Mocs return to action this Friday at the North Alabama Showcase. The meet will serve as a preview for the NCAA South Region Championships to be held on the same course on November 12.
