York, Pa. - Coming off a strong debut for the Blue and White, Marymount freshman Melissa Teeple was selected as the first Capital Athletic Conference Women’s Cross Country Player of the Week for the 2013 season, as announced by the league office on Thursday.
Teeple eclipsed the 23-minute mark Saturday, pacing the Saints over Salisbury’s Winterplace Park course – a 6K trail set to host CAC Championships this coming November. The Saints’ rookie finished 12th overall and first among CAC runners.
Teeple’s strong performance led Marymount to a fourth place seat in the final team standings – a program-best finish in a meet hosting at least 10 teams.
Marymount returns to action Saturday, September 14, when they travel to York, Pa., for the Coach Achtzen Classic.
