Crifasi Named SAC Men's Cross Country Runner of the Week
ROCK HILL, SC -- Catawba freshman Christian Crifasi (Ramseur, NC) and Lenoir-Rhyne's Kate Griewisch have been named the South Atlantic Conference Cross Country Runners of the Week. It was announced by the league office on Monday. It is the second this season that Crifasi has earned the honor.
Crifasi, a former standout at Eastern Randolph High School, took first place at the Belmont Abbey Invitational on Saturday in just his second meet back from an abdominal injury. He ran a time of 28:09 over the 8K course, winning by 51 seconds. Crifasi helped the Catawba men to the team title, its first since 2004. It is also the first individual win for a Catawba men's runner since 2004 as well.
Griewisch, a sophomore from Banner Elk, N.C. (Avery County HS) ran a personal best 17:44 and finished as the top NCAA Division II runner at the Charlotte Invitational this past Friday. She wins the weekly award for the fourth time this season.
