Sept. 10, 2013
USAF ACADEMY, Colo. - Air Force senior Jake Hawkins and sophomore Hannah Everson shared the Air Force Athlete of the Week award this morning (Sept. 10) after winning their respective races at the Colorado State Open last Friday and leading the Falcons to team titles.
Backed by a career-best time of 14:55.10, Hawkins won the 115-runner men's 5K race around the parking fields of Hughes Stadium. His time, which bettered the field by nearly two seconds, helped Air Force to the CSU Open team title and a 3-0 dual meet record against the other Division I teams.
Everson bettered the 77-runner women's field by nearly 33 seconds, as she completed the 5K course in a personal-best time of 18:02.00. Her time, a personal improvement of 40 seconds, paced the Falcons to the overall team title and a perfect 3-0 mark against the three other Division I squads.
The pair shared the Air Force Athlete of the Week award with senior golfer Kyle Westmoreland, who won the individual title and led Air Force to the team title at the Falcon Invitational.
