Joplin, Mo. -- Missouri Southern junior Marlee Tegenkamp has been named the MIAA's Female Cross Country Athlete of the Week as announced by the League office today.
Tegenkamp (5-6, Lee's Summit, Mo.) was the top collegiate finisher at the dual between MSSU and Pitt State last week, trailing only former Lion Ashley Bunch who was running unattached.
She traversed the 5k course in a time of 17:33.60 and was 23 seconds in front of her nearest competitor.
The Lions will be back in action this weekend as Southern travels to Stillwater, Okla. on Saturday to compete in the OSU Jamboree.
