MACON, Ga. – Thanks to a strong performance on Friday at the Coast to Coast Battle in Beantown, senior Madi Talbert has been named the Atlantic Sun Cross Country Runner of the Week for the fourth time.
The Charlotte native has also won the A-Sun Track Runner of the Week three times to give her seven total Runner of the Week awards in her career.
Talbert finished 20th out of a field of 206 runners thanks to a finishing time of 17:28.9. Her time, which was 21 seconds faster than her mark last year in the same meet, helped Lipscomb finish fifth out of a highly-competitive field of 25 teams.
Among the teams the Bisons defeated were Florida State and New Hampshire, both who are receiving national votes, and 25th-ranked Darthmouth. It was Lipscomb’s first victory over a nationally-ranked team in program history.
Lipscomb returns to competition this weekend at both the Greater Louisville Classic in Kentucky and the Foothills Invitational in Jacksonville, Ala.
