GREENSBORO, N.C. – Wake Forest’s Kent Garrett and Notre Dame’s Sydni Meunier have been named ACC Cross Country Performers of the Week following their competition this past weekend.

Garrett, a sophomore from Noblesville, Ind., won the Virginia Tech Invitational last Friday in Blacksburg, Va., out-pacing a field of 57 runners on the 6k course. Garrett finished in 18:55.60, the only runner to complete the course in less than 19 minutes. It marked his first career collegiate victory.

Meunier, a sophomore from Melvin, Illinois, won the season-opening Crusader Invitational by finishing the 5k race in 17:57.7.   Meunier’s performance keyed the Irish to the team title in convincing fashion, out-distancing second place Valparaiso by 46 points (15-to-61) had 61 points. Notre Dame had the top six finishers and seven of top 10.
