Annie Hills Southern States Runner of the Week

Annie Hills-C.R. Prairie-Loyola New Orleans

The Southern States Athletic Conference named Annie Hills, (from Cedar Rapids Prairie), of Loyola University New Orleans the Women’s Cross Country Runner of the Week.

On Saturday, Hills set the 6,000 meter Wolf Pack record at the LSU Invitational at Highland Road Park. It was the first meet of her career for Loyola. The junior who transfered to Loyola from Simpson finished in 26th place out of 60 runners, and paced the Pack with a time of 24:08.5. Hills broke the Loyola record by 39 seconds and bested the time of a 24:47 set by Catherine Baggett in the LSU Invitational in 2001.  Hills finished ahead of 22 Division I competitors in Saturday’s meet.

Hills and the rest of the cross country team will return to action the morning of October 13 at the Choctaw Open in Clinton, Mississippi.
