Sand Sharks take 2nd at Southern Wesleyan cross country meet

The USC Beaufort women's cross country team was in action Saturday in the Warrior Invitational at Southern Wesleyan University in Central, and the Sand Sharks finished second in a close battle with the host school.

Southern Wesleyan had 39 team points, while USCB finished with 45 on a warm late-September day on what Sand Sharks coach Larry Kimball described as a hilly course.

Selena Hutson was the top finisher for the Sand Sharks, placing second with a time of 21 minutes, 18 seconds. Katie Mock was fifth (21:47), Vannica Williams took eighth (22:36), Kristy Grannan was 11th (22:47) and Caitlin Howe was 19th (24:01).

The USC Beaufort men and women both will be competing Friday at the Charlotte Invitational.
