NACC Women's Cross Country Student-Athlete of the Week
Molly Cullinane, Concordia University Chicago
Cullinane placed third overall out of 135 runners at the Wisconsin Lutheran Warrior Invitational. She posted the fastest time by a NACC runner during the week with her 6-kilometer time of 24:35.56. Cullinane's time was inflated by roughly 20 seconds due to the leading runners being temporarily misdirected on a wet course. The Cougars finished third in the team race with 104 points.
