SOSU's Weger Earns Runner of the Week Honor

Following her first individual meet championship at the Northwestern State Demon Invitational, Bailee Weger has earned Great American Conference Women's Cross Country Runner of the Week honors.

She took home first place at the Demon Invitational as she bested the field of 50, and in doing so guided SE to its second meet championship of the year. SE won the meet with a score of 27 as all five of the Storm runners finished in the top 10.

She edged out her teammate, Haylee Story, by two seconds, clocking a 20:10.6 which is her second-best time of the season.

The individual win represented the first in program history.

Southeastern will be back in action on Oct. 26 when it travels to Russellville, Ark., to compete in the Great American Conference Championship.
