The Great South Athletic Conference (GSAC) has selected Lena Tahir as the runner of the week. She is the first Mills student-athlete to receive this recognition.
In her first race of the season, Tahir was her team's top finisher in the Mills Cross Country Invitational this past weekend. The Mills Invitational involves a hilly, 6k course and featured a Division I team and two NAIA teams. With a time of 33:05:00, Tahir was not only the first Mills runner, but was the top finisher among non-scholarship teams. Tahir finished within a minute of two Division I runners, missing out on placing in the top ten by 30 seconds.
