Abigail Shelly's (Collinsville, Miss./West Lauderdale) senior season is starting out with a bang.
Shelly continued the strong start to her 2019 campaign with a silver finish at the EMU Mennonite Heritage Invitational hosted by her Royals last Friday. Today she was named the ODAC Runner of the Week.
The senior finished the five-kilometer course second overall out of 23 competitors with a time of 21:16.5. The finish marked the top individual showing of her career. Shelly's efforts helped EMU win the team title with 22 points, 15 clear of St. Mary's College (Md.).
This is the first weekly award Shelly has earned from the Old Dominion Athletic Conference.
EMU's cross country runners head to Ohio this weekend, running at the Friendship Invitational hosted by Cedarville University.
