Oct. 9, 2012

NEW ORLEANS - After her big win last week at the Walt Disney World Classic, Paige Callahan of the Tulane Green Wave cross country team was named the Conference USA Female Athlete of the week, a title she shares with Stephanie Ledgerwood of Southern Miss. This is the first time the sophomore has been given this honor.

Last Saturday in Orlando, Callahan won her first individual title leading the team to second place. With a time of 18:53.70, she covered five kilometers faster than the other 231 runners in the competition. A Tulane woman has not been named Runner of the Week since September 28, 2009.

Callahan had similar success in Tulane's previous meet in which she crossed the finish line in second place.
