MONTGOMERY, Ala. - Blue Mountain College's Will Crigger, a senior from Corinth, was awarded the Southern States Athletic Conference's Runner of the Week, the home office announced today.
Crigger's week included the Topper Trails Classic 8K in Blue Mountain where he raced to a 6th place finish at 28:18, equating to a 5:42 per mile average and a personal best.
Crigger and the Toppers finished just behind Wallace State in the event, with four different runners hitting the podium.
"I'm so proud of Will and the extra effort he has put in this year," head coach Heather Duley said. "Being a senior requires leading and providing an example your team can follow; Will does just that."
This is Crigger's first ROW award in his career at BMC.
