Women’s cross country athlete earns runner of the week honors
Hamilton College cross country athlete Sarah Ohanesian '14 (Saratoga Springs, N.Y./Emma Willard School) was selected the New York State Collegiate Track Conference (NYSCTC) women's runner of the week on Oct. 8.
Ohanesian completed the 5-kilometer course in 18 minutes, 35.6 seconds and finished in third place out of 135 runners as the Continentals captured the team title in the Hamilton Invitational. Her performance was good enough to rank fifth all-time on the top course times list for women's cross country.
Ohanesian has finished in the top three a total of three times this year, including first place in a dual meet at Rensselaer on Sept. 15.
The Continentals take the weekend off before returning to the trails for the NYSCTC championship at Center Park in Fairport, N.Y., on Saturday, Oct. 20.
