Two Runners Named Scholar-Athletes
The NCCAA announced today the 2021-22 Men's and Women's Cross Country Scholar-Athletes. For Manhattan Christian College, two runners received this award.
Senior Drew Will, a dual degree student, competed in all four meets in the reinstated season for the Thunder. Will is currently working towards his degree in Youth Ministry along with Human Development and Family Studies at Kansas State University.
On the Women's side, senior Darby Cook was named. Cook unfortunately dealt with back issues that only allowed her to run in one meet this year. She is also a dual degree student who is studying Life Sciences with a Pre-Med emphasis at KSU, while getting a degree in Bible and Leadership at Manhattan Christian.
"Both these athletes show great work ethic, either in the classroom or on the course. They both are high character students with a positive attitude in all they do," stated head coach Mindy Eckert.
The fall season came to a close back on October 30 with the runners competing at the Ozark Christian Last Chance Meet.
