Spinapont claims CAC Athlete of the Week for third time in 2012

YORK, Pa. – The Capital Athletic Conference announced its weekly cross country awards on Tuesday and Salisbury University sophomore Hailey Spinapont was named the league's Female Athlete of the Week for the third time this season.

Spinapont helped the Salisbury women to their first meet win, claiming the Don Cathcart Invitational by one point over Division II Mansfield University. Spinapont was the top Division III runner in the event, covering the 6,000-meter course in 21:59.

The time was 57 seconds faster than her mark in the Sea Gull Opener, held four weeks earlier on the same course at Winter Place Park.

Spinapont and the Sea Gulls will be back in action on Saturday, Oct. 13, after a week off, at the Gettysburg Invitational.
