COLUMBIA — Columbia College sophomore Lindsey Martin* was named American Midwest Conference Runner of the Week on Tuesday.

Martin was awarded AMC Runner of the Week after finishing second in her inaugural event for the Cougars at the Gabby Reuveni Early Bird Meet in St. Louis' Forrest Park. Martin's time was 14 minutes, 58 seconds in Saturday's 4-kilometer race. She was the first finisher from an NAIA school.

Columbia College finished third as a team with 61 points. Southeast Missouri was the women's team champion with 34 points.

The Cougars' other runners were Emily Shultz (fourth place, 15:17); Riley Fader* (sixth, 15:25); Maggie Noble (20th, 16:00); Julia Montgomery (29th, 16:36); Jordyn Kendall (36th, 17:42); and Kelsey Baldwin (40th, 18:02).

The Columbia College men's team did not have a full team compete at Saturday's meet. The team's individual runners in the 6-kilometer men's race were Michael McCulloch (fifth place, 19:30); Tommy Skosky (24th, 20:20); Devin Sander (27th, 20:23); and Cameron Schmitz (30th, 20:32).
