Dickie and Guliford covered the rolling hills of the two-mile course in 11:10. A look at the finish line photo, however, revealed that the UT senior barely edged her younger teammate. With the win, Dickie scored as Tennessee's top runner for the 16th time in her past 16 races, dating back to the NCAA Championships of her freshman year on Nov. 23, 1998.
Sophomores Brooke Novak and Elizabeth McCalley were fourth and seventh, respectively, in 11:36 and 11:57, and junior Erin Anderson was ninth in 12:02 to help Tennessee total 23 points to hold off a 37-point tally by host Tennessee-Chattanooga. Vanderbilt took third with 97, followed by Tennessee State (118), University of the South (127), Tennessee Tech (133) and Middle Tennessee and Fisk (224).
Tennessee's next meet is the Southeastern Conference Championships on Nov. 4. The meet will be held at the University of Florida Golf Course in Gainesville, Fla., at 9 a.m. The last time the meet was held in Gainesville, UT brought home the team trophy in 1990.
The trip to the Sunshine State will also mark the return of Clark to the city where he spent 10 years as the head coach of Florida's cross country program and an assistant in track and field. He left the school on May 23, 2002, to direct the women's cross country and track and field teams at Tennessee. In his first season, he has guided the Lady Vols to a 33-5 record and three victories in four meets.
