CLEMSON, S.C. – For the second time this season, Gladys Chepngetich earns a weekly honor as she has been tabbed ACC Co–Female Freshman of the Week, the conference office announced on Tuesday.
The honor comes after Chepngetich recorded her second, first-place finish at the Live in Lou Classic in Louisville this past weekend. In the Women’s 5k, Chepngetich finished the race in 16 minutes and 14 seconds as she had an average pace of five minutes and 22 seconds. Chepngetich crossed the finish line 15 seconds before the second-place finisher completed the race.
The event marked Chepngetich’s second, first-place finish as the newcomer won the Women’s 6k at the Furman Invitational earlier this season.
Up next, Chepngetich and the Tigers will head to Tuscaloosa, Ala. for the Crimson Classic on October 13th.
