Both the North Carolina men's and women's cross country teams finished 11th at the ACC Championships in Louisville, Ky., as two Tar Heels earned All-ACC honors for the women’s team.
Morgan Ilse and Caroline Alcorta jumped out to a fast start, running in fifth and seventh, respectively, a third of the way through the race.
As the race wore on, Ilse and Alcorta dropped just outside of the top ten, but Ilse’s 11th place and Alcorta’s 12th place finishes led the Tar Heels and earned both runners All-ACC honors.
The rest of the women’s team finished in the second half of the 132 runner field, with Mady Clahane and Erin Edmundson finishing within two seconds of each other and leading the rest of the pack. Clahane finished 71st, while Edmundson ended up 73rd.
The UNC women’s average time ran just one second slower than 10th place Pittsburgh, but a full minute and ten seconds behind ACC champion No. 5 North Carolina State.
