(INDIANAPOLIS) – Andra Lehotay was selected by the Great Midwest Athletic Conference as its women's track Athlete of the Week. Lehotay is part of an elite mile pack in the Great Midwest in the same company as teammate Sarah Berger and Hillsdale's Hannah McIntyre.
Similar to how deep the contingent of weight throw competitors are on the men's side, the same applies to the women's distance runners. She finished second in the mile run in a time of 4:48.24 at the GVSU Big Meet, one of seven different provisional marks recorded in the event.
Lehotay was also part of the Cavaliers' distance medley relay unit that clocked the fourth-fastest time in conference history at 11:37.75. Walsh placed first in the event as a team. Lehotay was a second-team all-conference honoree in the sport of women's cross country during the fall.
Nationally rankeed No. 9 Walsh will be back in actiont this week at the Kent State Tune-Up on Saturday.
