MACON, Ga. – Jacksonville University women's cross country runner Jana Reinert earned ASUN Runner of the Week honors following an outstanding performance at the FSU Invitational last week, as announced by the league Wednesday.
"Jana has run 54 seconds for 400 meters; I wasn't even sure if she would run cross country this year," stated Director of Cross Country and Track & Field Ron Grigg. "To see her skill set expand to running under 18 minutes for 5K of cross country bodes well for future track performances."
Reinert, a freshman from Waldron, Germany, led the Dolphins in the 5,000-meter race and finished third overall to help JU place second as a team, just behind the host Seminoles who currently rank third in the South Region.
Reinert's impressive time of 17:58.0 is 11th on the Dolphins' all-time 5K list.
Reinert and the Dolphins return to the course Friday, Oct. 13 when they head to Tampa for the USF Invitational. The women's 5K race begins at 5:00 p.m., followed by the men's 8K race at 5:45 p.m.
