TOWSON, Md. – Susquehanna cross country runners Alex Price (Skytop, Pa./Pocono Mountain East) and Ashley West (East Hampton, N.Y./East Hampton) were named the Landmark Conference Male and Female Cross Country Athletes of the Week on Monday afternoon.

Price, a senior, was SU's top finisher at Penn State's Harry Groves Spiked Shoe Invitational on Sept. 13. He placed 40th out of 133 runners on the 5.2-mile course with a time of 27:16 for an average pace of 5:15 per mile. This marked the first race of that specific distance in Price's collegiate career.
 
Susquehanna placed ninth overall at the meet, defeating two Division I schools in St. Bonaventure and Mount St. Mary's.

Meanwhile, West finished 41st out of 131 runners in the women's 6k race with a time of 22:59. The junior averaged a 6:09 pace on the course. As a team, SU placed 10th as the Crusaders faced competition from seven Division I teams and two fellow Division III teams, including preseason No. 10 SUNY Geneseo.

Susquehanna returns to racing on Sept. 27 at the Lock Haven Invitational.
