YORK, Pa. - Following her individual triumph at the 2011 Goucher
College Cross Country Classic, York College freshman runner Misty Parshall has been selected as
the latest Spartan Athlete of the Week.
The rookie snagged first overall at the annual Goucher meet last
Saturday as she posted a 25:22 to best the field of 70 competitors,
topping second by six seconds. Parshall's finish led York to
second-place overall as a team at the eight-squad event.
"Misty had a heck of a race," Spartan head coach Erick Camodeca said. "She went out
faster than expected but held on to take first."
Parshall and the Spartans now turn their focus to the training
over the final two weeks before the annual Capital Athletic
Conference Championships. The CAC meet is slated for Saturday,
October 29, at York's John Rudy Park with a start time of 11:00
