UTC's Henderson Named Runner Of The Month

Thursday, October 10, 2013

University of Tennessee at Chattanooga sophomore distance runner Teghan Henderson (Pickering, Ontario) raced out to back-to-back wins in September and was selected the Southern Conference Runner of the Month.

Henderson led the Lady Mocs to a top place finish at the team’s season-opening PowerAde Invitational claiming the title in the women’s 2-mile race. She finished the course in a time of 10:58.10, more than 25 seconds ahead of her nearest competitor.

She made it a repeat performance two weeks later at the Georgia State Invitational, pacing the field with a time of 14:07.61 over the 4-kilometer course and helping Chattanooga to a second place finish for just the second title of her young collegiate career.

She was named the league’s Runner of the Week on Sept. 11 and 25 for her performances.

The men’s and women’s cross country teams will host the Front Runner Invitational on Saturday, October 19 at the Moccasin Bend Race Course. The women’s race begins at 3 p.m. followed by the men’s 5K.
