Talbert nabs third A-Sun weekly award of 2015

MACON, Ga. – After competing at the prestigious Mt. Sac Relays over the weekend, Madi Talbert has notched her second Atlantic Sun Outdoor Track Athlete of the Week award of her career.

The junior ran in the 5000m at the Mt. Sac Relays, finishing eighth among a field of 24 runners with a personal record time of 16:20.52.

The mark places Talbert first in the A-Sun in the event, 34th in the East Region and 64th nationally. She now leads the A-Sun in both the 5000m and the 3000m steeplechase, and ranks in the top 40 in the East Region in both events.

The North Carolina native won an Indoor Track Athlete of the Week award at the beginning of the 2015 season, and is a two-time outdoor National Championship qualifier in the 3000m steeplechase.
