Women's cross country enjoys record-breaking season

The women's cross country team has good reason to celebrate after back-to-back wins during the fall semester. Hannah Steelman ’21, a native of Orono, Maine, also picked up two individual wins and was twice named Southern Conference Runner of the Week.

The celebration continued during the 2017 Southern Conference Championship. The women finished fifth and the men finished eighth. Steelman crossed the finish line in 16:57.6 for sixth place and a new college record in the 5K, nearly 30 seconds faster than the previous record. She was the first Wofford women's cross country runner to receive SoCon Freshman of the Year and All-Southern Conference first team honors. 

On Nov. 10, the women ended their season at the 2017 NCAA Southeast Regional meet at Panorama Farms in Charlottesville, Va. Steelman finished 18th overall to earn NCAA All-Region honors, the first Terrier to do so. In the 6k race, she ran a 20:57.9 to set a new Wofford record in the distance.
