FAMU women's cross country captures fifth MEAC crown in a row

TALLAHASSEE, Florida -- For the fifth straight year, Florida A&M's women's cross country team is on top of the MEAC.

FAMU track director Darlene Moore's crew captured its fifth conference title in a row on Saturday in Smyrna, Delaware.  The Rattlers are the first team in the history of the conference to win five consecutive titles.

Junior Judith Kibii -- who was named the MEAC women's cross country Athlete of the Week four teams this season -- finally broke through to place first in the race after finishing second in her freshman and sophomore years. She finished the race with a time of 18:02.60, nearly 10 seconds faster than second-place finisher Jennaya Hield, from Maryland-Eastern Shore.

Kibii was named Outstanding Performer. She's the second FAMU runner in school history to capture the individual women's cross country title. Moore was named Outstanding Coach for the fifth year in a row.
