ATLANTA, Ga. - It didn't take long for Agnes Scott cross country to make an impact in the Great South Athletic Conference, as the GSAC announced today that the Scotties' Giulia Ghezzi claimed Runner of the Week for the week of September 22-28, 2014.
Ghezzi crossed the finish line first for the Scotties for the third meet in a row at the University of North Georgia Invitational this weekend. Among a field of mostly NCAA Division II runners, Ghezzi finished the 5k in a time of 23:52 (7:42 per mile), good for 72nd place. Her pace was a significant improvement over the first two 6k's of the season, when she averaged 8:35 and 7:49 per mile, respectively.
The GSAC sports information directors nominate Player of the Week candidates and then vote on the top two nominees in each sport as selected by the conference office. Player of the Week voting occurs on Tuesdays and the weekly announcement of the winners is released each Wednesday morning.
