NASHVILLE — The Vanderbilt women’s cross country team used a pair of All-SEC performances to finish third at the 2012 SEC Cross Country Championships, held Friday, October 26, at Percy Warner Park.

Redshirt freshman Hannah Jumper earned First Team All-SEC honors and All-Freshman honors after finishing seventh with a time of 20:41.72. Jumper was the top rookie finisher in the race and finished in the top-seven of all three races she ran in this season at Percy Warner Park.

Right behind Jumper was senior Kristen Findley, who placed eighth and earned a spot on the All-SEC Second Team. Findley finished in 20:43.23, almost 30 seconds better than her Commodore Classic time from September.

Senior Liz Anderson missed All-SEC honors by six seconds, finishing 15th with a time of 21:21.26.


The trio had Vanderbilt in a position to contend, but the Commodores struggled to score low with their fourth and fifth runners with senior Kristen Smith missing the race due to illness.

A pair of seniors rounded out the scoring for Vanderbilt. Jordan White was Vanderbilt’s next finisher in 37th place, finishing in 21:36.55. Allie Scalf finished 52nd with a time of 21:55.43.

Florida took home the team title, placing all five runners in the top-22 and scoring 61 points. The Gators edged Arkansas, who finished with 70 points.

Kentucky’s Cally Macumber took home the individual title, finishing in 20:23.29.

Next up for Vanderbilt is the NCAA South Regional. The meet will be held on Friday, November 9, in Tallahassee, Fla.
