A pair of Saint Leo cross-country runners recently earned Sunshine State Conference (SSC) Runner of the Week honors.
Saint Leo men’s cross-country runner Ron Chesarek, and women’s runner Colett Rampf, were each awarded for their performances for the week ending Sept. 11.
Chesarek, a freshman from Kitale, Kenya, clocked a 25:08.27 to win the Florida Tech Invitational Men’s 8K on Sept. 10 in Melbourne.
Rampf, a junior from Premnitz, Germany, posted a time of 17:59.52 to win the women’s 5K race in Melbourne.
The women’s SSC Runner of the Week award is the ninth for Rampf in her three-year career at Saint Leo. She captured the honor four times during both her 2014 rookie season and her 2015 sophomore campaign.
Both the men’s and women’s teams return to competition on Sept. 24, when they travel to Gainesville to race in the Florida Mountain Dew Invitational.
