BLOOMINGTON, Minn. – Emily Kaegi (Sr./Williamstown, Mass./Mount Greylock) was the top MIAC finisher at the Roy Griak Invitational, leading the Knights to the team title in the Division III competition. On Tuesday, she was selected as the MIAC Women’s Cross Country Athlete-of-the-Week.

This is the fourth time in Kaegi’s career that she has captured the conference’s weekly award for cross country.

The D-II and D-III races on Saturday were combined into one event but scored separately. This created a crowded 55-squad race, totaling 570 runners. Kaegi’s finishing time of 22:56.3 ranked second among D-III runners and ninth overall.

Kaegi and her teammates will race this Saturday, Sept. 30 as Carleton hosts the Running of the Cows.
