LANCASTER, Pa. – Lindsay Wilson (Catonsville, Md./Seton Keough), a senior on the McDaniel cross country team, has been named Centennial Conference (CC) Co-Runner of the Week for the week of Sept. 13-19.

It marked the second straight week that she earned the conference honor, joining Ursinus' Sarah Huang this week.

A week after winning both the 3,000- and 5,000-meter races at the Green Terror Challenge, Wilson turned in her third straight individual victory and made it 3-for-3 at the Coach Achtzehn Classic hosted by York (Pa.).

She crossed the line in a time of 19:08.99, improving her own personal-best time on the 5,000-meter John Rudy Park course by 22 seconds. It was the fourth-fastest Green Terror performance all-time on the course.

The Green Terror returns to action at the Paul Short Invitational hosted by Lehigh on Friday, Oct. 1.
