AUSTINTOWN, Ohio -- Mount Union junior Hilary Reigle (Madison) has claimed Ohio Athletic Conference Women's Track Athlete of the Week honors.

It is the second week this season, Reigle has earned the award (April 4).

Reigle set a school record in the 5,000 meters with a time of 17:18.14 at the Bucknell (Pa.) Classic this past weekend. Her time beat the previous record of 17:26.83 that Catie Campbell ran for the Purple Raiders in 2015. It is currently the 21st best time in NCAA Division III this season and the top 22 times in each women's event qualifies for next month's national championship meet.

Reigle qualified for the NCAA Cross Country Championships this past Fall.
