The women finished fourth at the USA South meet two weeks ago, despite having leading runner Lilly Smith not able to finish the race. Hannah Samuels was the top finisher as she placed sixth overall. The women had four All-USA South finishers.

At last year's region meets in Winchester, Va., the men finished 24th while the women were 18th at the event hosted by Shenandoah University.
