Sep 4, 2013
ANNAPOLIS, Md. - Women's cross country junior Annie-Norah Beveridge (Ann Arbor, Mich.) has been named the Navy Athlete of the Week Presented by Rolls Royce for the week ending Sept. 1. The Naval Academy Athletic Association will be honoring one student-athlete each week from one of its 32 varsity sports during the 2013-14 academic year based on athletic performance.
Watch a video interview with Beveridge below.
Beveridge picked up where she left off last season, as the Patriot League individual champion and participant in the NCAA Championship clocked a time of 18:21.85 to take first place in the Mount St. Mary's 5K Duals on Friday. She also led Navy to the team title in a field that included Delaware and Maryland. Beveridge has placed first for Navy in seven consecutive meets dating back to Sept. 12, 2012 at the Salty Dog Invitational. She was named Patriot League M-F Athletic Female Runner of the Week for the sixth time in her career this week, matching American's Keira Carlstrom (2002-05) for the most in League history.
The Midshipmen are off this weekend but will return to host the Salty Dog Invitational on Saturday, Sept. 14.
