Cross Country Sweeps Weekly Awards

TOWSON, Md. – The Susquehanna cross country programs swept the weekly Landmark Conference awards as sophomore Paul Crowe (Boalsburg, Pa./State College Area) and freshman Ashley West (East Hampton, N.Y./East Hampton) were  named the conference’s Male and Female Runners of the Week, announced on Tuesday.

Crowe was again the team’s top finisher after he set an 8k PR of 26.55.2 at last Saturday’s Lock Haven River Run. He easily eclipsed his previous mark of 27:36 and placed 34th overall out of the 176-runner field. As a team, the Crusaders were sixth out of 12 teams.

West, meanwhile, continued her impressive rookie season by being the top women’s finisher for SU
for the third race in a row. She ran the 6k course in a personal-best time of 23:21.5 to earn 18th
overall in the field of 151 female runners. The women’s team as a whole finished 10th out of 12
squads at the race.

Both teams are off from official competition this weekend as they host the annual Ashley Shell Tomlinson Memorial Run on Saturday, Sept. 29 at Sassafras Field.
