Gretchen Spahr earns accolade as Crossroads League runner of week

For the second time in her collegiate career, Huntington University junior Gretchen Spahr was named the Crossroads League Cross Country Runner of the Week, for the week of Oct. 7, 2013, based on her performance at the NCAA III Pre-Nationals 6K Invitational hosted by Hanover College.

Competing on Saturday, Oct. 5, against 228 athletes representing 18 different schools, Spahr crossed the line in 23:16 to finish 18th and pace her team to a sixth place finish overall.

Spahr earned this same honor last year for the week of Sept. 17, for her efforts at the 2012 Indiana Little State.
