Severson named GLIAC Runner of the Week

GVL Staff

Grand Valley State University junior Kelcie Severson earned some recognition following her strong performance at the Calvin College Knight Invitational on Sept. 8. She was the highest placing GVSU student-athlete, finishing in sixth-place at the 5K event. It all led to her being named the GLIAC women’s cross country “Runner of the Week” on Sept. 13. Her time of 18 minutes, 12.20 seconds also helped the Lakers to capture second-place as a team. To date, it was the highest finish of Severson’s career.
The standout from Rockford, Mich. recently backed-up her strong race with a 43rd place finish at the Spartan Invitational on Friday. Her time of 22:30 was good enough for fourth on the Laker’s squad.
Severson and her teammates will now get the weekend off to rest and prepare for their next meet. The No. 3 GVSU women’s cross country team will get another crack at things on Sept. 29 when they travel to Louisville, Ky., to compete in the Greater Louisville Classic.
