Louisville, Ky. -- Georgetown College's Britney Chesser won the Mid-South Conference Championship and was named the MSC Female Runner of the Year at E.P. Tom Sawyer Park on Saturday.
Chesser, a five-time MSC Runner of the Week this season, captured the individual championship running the 5,000 meter course in 18 minutes and 58 seconds and qualified herself for the NAIA National Meet. The Louisville native also earned MSC All-Conference honors reserved for the top-10 finishers at the MSC Championships. On the men's side, Grant Curran and Lucas Garnett were also selected for All-Conference honors and will move on to the national meet as individuals.
Following the race at the annual cross country banquet, five Tigers were recognized as Academic All Mid-South Conference. The distinction is reserved for student-athletes with a sophomore or higher class ranking and a 3.25 and above grade point average. Chesser, Adrienne Bartlett, Stephanie Beatrice, Amanda Bolton, Layne Bush, Kelsey Barbato, Garnett and Michael Bailey all earned the honor.
The annual MSC Champion of Character Awards were swept by Tigers this year, as Chesser and Garnett were each given the high honor.
