Freshman sensation Juliet Cherubet showcased her exceptional prowess at the 2023 Cross Country NCAA Championships, hosted by Virginia at Panorama Farms, earning herself a prestigious All-American title on Saturday morning. Cherubet's remarkable performance saw her clinch the 18th spot in the women's 6k event with a commendable time of 19:40.10. To secure All-American recognition, runners must finish among the top-40 competitors, a feat Cherubet achieved emphatically. Throughout the race, Cherubet displayed incredible consistency, maintaining a position within the top-10 from the 1k mark to the 5k mark. Early on, she surged into a commanding second place at the 1k mark, clocking a swift split time of 2:54.70. Despite a slight decline in the final 1k, where she slipped seven spots, Cherubet's overall performance secured her the 18th position, making her the second-highest placing freshman in the competition, trailing only behind Alabama's Doris Lemngole, who finished second with a time of 19:05.70.

Coach Kingsbury is 17-0 when the defense holds the opponent to under 30 points
Sounds like Payton will graduate from Tech after the Summer Session ends and will seek a grad transfer. In earlier post today talked about the abundance of defensive backs on Tech's current roster and that there weren't enough reps for everyone. Sounds like Payton (who is stuck behind Jah'Shawn Johnson on the depth chart) wanted a fresh start to compete. Makes sense, especially after the influx of DB's over the last year and a half.
