NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Fueled by another strong performance, Belmont women's cross country senior Hannah Wittman (Lindenhurst, Ill.) was tabbed the adidas® OVC Female Runner of the Week, as announced by the league on Tuesday. It marks the second time she has received the honor this season.
The Lindenhurst, Ill., native earned her second OVC Runner of the Week nod of the early season by taking 13th out of more than 240 competitors at the Commodore Classic, hosted by Vanderbilt, held at Percy Warner Park in Nashville. Wittman finished the 5K course in 17:26.0, helping the Bruins to an eighth place finish in a competitive field of 21 squads. Her effort also saw Belmont move up to 10th in the South Region in the latest USTFCCCA poll.
Wittman and the rest of the Bruins return to action on Saturday, October 3 at the Greater Louisville Classic.
