PSU sweeps Big Ten honors
ROSEMONT, Ill. The Penn State men’s and women’s cross country teams swept the weekly conference honors on Wednesday.
Colin Abert and Jillian Hunsberger were both named the Big Ten cross country athletes of the week after guiding the Nittany Lions to team titles at the Lock Haven Dolan Duals. Abert finished the 6K first in 17 minutes, 31.53 seconds while Hunsberger finished her 4K in the top spot with a time of 13:53.87.
This is the men’s first such honor since Sept. 9, 2015, when Ean Disilvio won. The last female Penn State runner to win was Tessa Barrett on Sept. 14 of last year.
