Kurgat Tabbed Big South Athlete of the Week

After a most impressive collegiate debut, Liberty freshman distance runner Ednah Kurgat has been named the Big South Women's Indoor Track Athlete of the Week.

Kurgat placed fourth in the women's 3K at the Hokie Invitational on Friday, clocking a Liberty freshman record and ECAC-qualifying time of 9:44.26. The native of Eldoret, Kenya already ranks second in program history and fifth in Big South annals for the event.

Kurgat's time ranks first on the 2014-15 Big South indoor list by 17 seconds.

Liberty's next meet will be the Sykes-Sabock Challenge Cup, slated for Feb. 6-7 in University Park, Pa.
