Monnett Named NCAC Women's Runner of the Week

Claudia Monnett was named the North Coast Athletic Conference Women's Cross Country Runner of the Week following her performance last weekend at the Indiana Intercollegiates.

Monnett won the little state portion of the event, covering the 5,000-meter course in 19:17.23 and winning the individual competition by nearly 15 seconds. It was Monnett's second win in as many tries, previously winning the two-mile course at the Illinois Titan Opener earlier in the month.

As a team, the Tigers won the event. Lois Miller and Becca Conley also finished in the top ten, while Natalie Gruszka and Gabby Coffing had top 20 finishes.

DePauw competes again in a dual meet against Rose-Hulman on Friday at the LaVern Gibson Course in Terre Haute.
