ACC Championship

November 11, 2013 - 12:30pm
The Orange came into the year young and leaderless, but SU fought its way to becoming a nice surprise in the ACC.

All year, head coach Chris Fox has been saying it would come down to peaking at the right time. It’s the reality of the cross country season, really — a couple of meets early in the year to earn points toward nationals, but everything culminating with a two-week span in November when the ACC and Northeast regional meets come around. The weeks and races rolled by, and Fox kept preaching: improvement.

“We’re really just worried about getting our work in and getting better,” he said after the Roy Griak Invitational in September.

The men won its second straight conference championship and the young women's team placed third.

Different conference, same result for the Syracuse men’s cross country team. 

The No. 14 Orange won its second consecutive conference championship Friday, winning the ACC title in Kernersville, N.C., after winning the Big East championship in its final year in the conference last season.

While no team scores were kept and few upperclass raced, some of SU's younger runners showed off their skills at the John Reif Memorial race at Cornell University.

The Syracuse cross country team ran its last regular season race on Friday at the John Reif Memorial at Cornell University, the last meet before the ACC Championship next weekend.

Although he played long before the Orange joined the ACC, legendary running back Floyd Little was inducted into the 2013 ACC Class of Legends.

Dubbing Floyd Little an ACC legend might be a bit of an awkward fit — the Orange have yet to play a single football game in the conference, after all — but odds are good that no one will mind giving one more trophy and standing ovation to No. 44.

Little, along with 13 others, was named to the 2013 Class of Legends by the ACC this afternoon. The group will be honored at the ACC Championship Game at a dinner on Dec. 6 and on the field in Charlotte on Dec. 7.
