PC's McMahon and McCambridge Run Fastest Times in U.S.
Hixson Qualifies for U.S. Team at World Jr. CC Championship
PROVIDENCE, R.I. -- It was an exciting weekend for the Providence College women's cross country and track programs on Jan. 31 - Feb. 1. On Feb. 1, seniors Marie McMahon (Ennistymon, Ireland) and Maria McCambridge (Dublin, Ireland) each earned a first-place finish at the Terrier Classic in Boston, Mass. and recorded the fastest collegiate times in the country this season in their respective races. Also highlighting the weekend was the exciting performance of PC freshman Rachel Hixson (Media, Pa.) who finished in sixth place (21:19.06) at the 1998 U.S. World Junior Cross Country Trials in Orlando, Fla. on Jan. 31 and qualified for the U.S. World Junior Team.
McMahon, a nine-time All-American and the 1996 NCAA 5,000 meter indoor champion, captured the 5,000-meter title at the Terrier Classic in a time of 16:05.48. McCambridge, a five-time All-American, won the 3,000 meters at the Terrier Classic in a time of 9:22.33. Also at the Terrier Classic, junior Sarah Dupre (Kingston, Ontario) ran an impressive race for the Friars in the 3,000, finishing fourth in a time of 9:28. All three runners qualified for the NCAA Indoor Championship on March 13-14 in Indianapolis, Ind.
With her sixth-place finish on Jan. 31, Hixson became the first Providence College runner ever to qualify for the U.S. World Junior Team. She will represent the United States at the World Junior Cross Country Championship in Marrakesh, Morocco on March 21. In November, Hixson finished 44th overall (17:30) and helped the PC women's cross country team place sixth at the NCAA Cross Country Championship in Greenville, S.C.
