Senior earns Athlete of the Week accolades after first showing as an Eagle
Senior Amy Kolin from the Eastern Washington University cross country team has been named Big Sky Conference Athlete of the Week, after her impressive performance at the Sundodger Invitational Saturday (Sept. 18), as she helped the women’s team finish sixth out of the nine total teams.
Kolin paced the women’s team, placing 12th overall in her first competition as an Eagle, clocking a time of 21:41. The transfer from Grand Valley State was able to beat eight of No. 3 Washington's 14 runners. In addition, the senior beat all of regionally-ranked Nevada's competitors.
Kolin will be in action again Saturday (Oct. 2), as the Eagles head to the University of Montana to compete in the Montana Invitational.
