Team Pfeiffer Cycling Records Back-to-Back ACCC Championships; Finish 146 Points in Front of Duke

MISENHEIMER, N.C. – For the second consecutive year, Team Pfeiffer Cycling can call themselves the Atlantic Coast Cycling Conference champions. Over the weekend at the conference championships hosted by Virginia Tech, the Falcons held on at the end of the weekend to claim the title by 146 points, which is 139 point better than last season’s margin of victory.

With the targets on their backs, Pfeiffer had a minor setback on Saturday as Duke, Maryland, host Virginia Tech and N.C. State started working together to dethrone the Falcons. Pfeiffer placed second in the road races while coming in third during the team time trial. During the trials, the women finished second while the men crossed the line in seventh.

Road racing action saw Michael Robinson and Justin Beard finish 11th and 13th in the men’s A event. In the men’s B, Michael Brown concluded sixth with Eric Sekercan taking ninth in the D race. On the women’s side, Kirsten Fee took home fourth in the A race while Stephanie Bunnett claimed the top spot in the B. After an early crash in the women’s C event, Paige Beard bounced back by chasing down and passing the field for a first place victory.

On Sunday, Fee and Bunnett won both of their A and B events respectively while Beard finished runner-up in the C field. For the men’s A, Beard took home third with Robinson finishing fourth. Brown scored a sixth place finish in the men’s B.

Pfeiffer took home five individual season victories at the D2 level overall, three of them won as well combining the D1 field with D2.  The Falcons cruised to the 146 point victory with 1,346 points, followed by Duke with 1,200.
