Cross Country - Tue, Sep. 6, 2011

Georgetown College's men's and women's cross country teams swept a lot of things this past week. The Tigers won the individual and team portions of the A.J. Special at Asbury University and then swept the Mid-South Conference Cross Country Runners of the Week awards.

Junior Tyler Doolittle, who won his first collegiate race, picked up the honor on the men's side, while sophomore Elisha Overpeck was the female award.

It is the first time each has received this honor.

Doolittle was behind Lincoln Memorial University's Derrick Lindsay rounding the end of the race, but had a solid push to win by more than 10 seconds.

"He ran a great race," said GC men's coach Todd McDaniel.

The Louisville native finished the 5,000 meters in 17 minutes 29.35 seconds. Doolittle led the Tigers to a team win with five teammates finishing in the top-10.

Overpeck won the race for the second year in a row. The Elsmore native lapped the field in the women's race, finishing nearly two minutes ahead of her closest competitor.

Her 19:54.47 time was almost 20 seconds better than her finish there a year ago and several seconds faster than her national time this past November.

Overpeck led the Tigers to the win with four runners finishing in the top-five.
