WASHINGTON, D.C.- Senior cross country runner Kiera Lyons was selected as the Landmark Conference Athlete of the Week in women's cross country after an impressive performance this past weekend.
Lyons led the team finishing in second place with a time of 22:35.69 in the 6k at the 30th Annual Don Cathcart Invitational in Salisbury, Md. on Saturday. Her time marks the fastest in the Landmark Conference this season and falls just eight seconds short of the school-record in which she set last season.
Lyons has finished in the top-10 of every meet so far this season and looks to continue that success when the Cardinals travel to Frederick, Md. for the Hood Open on Saturday, October 13.
