INDIANAPOLIS – The Crossroads League has selected Mae Elizabeth Gimre of the Taylor University women's cross country team as its top female runner of the week, as announced by the league office on Tuesday morning.
Gimre ran the fourth-lowest time in Taylor's program history and claimed second-of-273 runners at the Great Lakes Invite with a time of 18:10 on October 22. The time was the fourth-straight race with a new personal-best for Gimre, while the second-place finish was a career-best and the fourth top-five performance in five races this season for the West Chicago, Illinois native.
In addition to setting new personal-best times in each of TU's last four races, Gimre has now recorded the program's top-three times of the season and owns a collective win-loss record of 1,062 wins to just 20 losses through five races this campaign.
The honor is the fourth in five races for Gimre this season and bumps TU's total of individual weekly honors from the Crossroads League and Mid-States Football Association this fall to 24. Gimre was joined by Gabe Saliba (men's soccer), Lauren Engelkes (women's soccer) and Haley Harrell (volleyball) in being recognized by the Crossroads League on Tuesday.
Gimre and the No. 12 Trojans (92-7) will turn their attention to November 5, when they will race for a fourth-straight Crossroads League Championship. The race is hosted by Indiana Wesleyan and is set to begin at 10:30 am.
