Parshall Chosen Spartan Athlete of the Week

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 am.
