asics Greenville Track Club-ELITE - a post-collegiate, Olympic development program
Only a week after placing first and second in the 5,000 meter event at the Georgia Tech Invitational in Atlanta, ASICS Greenville Track Club-ELITE teammates Alison Parris and Nicole DiMercurio replicated those performances at the LexMed Heart & Sole Women's 5-Miler in Columbia, SC.
Parris's winning time was 27:44 and earned her $500, while DiMercurio was only 3 seconds behind in 27:47 and earned $400. Their times were the second and third fastest in the history of this event and were recorded on a rainy and wet Saturday morning in the women-only race.
