Runners demonstrate true sportsmanship at ACC championship

During the ACC women’s cross country championship on Friday in Cary, N.C., sportsmanship was truly demonstrated at its finest.

About 20 yards before the finish line, Boston College runner Madeline Adams fell to the ground exhausted right before concluding the race.

Clemson’s Evie Tate came to Adams’ side and tried to assist her in finishing the race. As Louisville’s Rachel Pease came running down during her final push, she also stopped to help Adams, grabbing the left side of her body to assist Tate.

The pair then helped Adams eventually cross the finish line and received hugs from some of Adams' Boston College teammates.

The N.C. State Wolfpack won the women's ACC cross country title on Friday, marking the women's 22nd and the program's 38th ACC title – the most of any school in the conference.

The women's cross country championship will be held on Nov. 19 in Terre Haute, Indiana.
