We award the Women’s Student-Athlete of the Week honor to Wise, Virginia cross country freshman Carlee Salyers.

In the high-heat challenged Run for the Water Barrel held at Winchester, Kentucky, with 29 total runners, Salyers paced the team in the 4k (2.49 miles) as she blazed across the finish line with a race-winning time of 16:20.

Her first-place performance was .51 seconds ahead of her nearest competitor.
