Holahan and Ziegenhals Named Runners of the Week

Gordon College junior Brian Holahan (Chester, New York) and freshman Thais Ziegenhals (Essex, Massachusetts) have been named The Commonwealth Coast Conference (TCCC) Male Runner of the Week and Female Runner and Rookie of the Week, respectively, for their efforts this past weekend in the Gordon Invitational.

Holahan took two seconds off his personal best with a 28:09 finish on the 8k course, grabbing first place out of the 31-runner field. Ziegenhals won the 46-runner, 5k race with a 20:19 time, booking the second best time of her career and first ever collegiate victory. Their performances helped lead the Fighting Scots to first-place finishes in both races.

The Scots will spend the coming week training for the TCCC Championships on Saturday, October 30. The meet will be hosted by Roger Williams University at Colt State Park in Bristol, Rhode Island.
