Mooney Named National Runner of Week for Third Time This Season

NEW LONDON, Conn. – Coast Guard Academy sophomore Kaitlyn Mooney has once again been named the Women's Division III National Athletes of the Week by the U.S. Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association (USTFCCCA).

Mooney wins the award for the third time this season after another incredible performance at the NCAA Division III New England Indoor Track and Field Championships at Bowdoin College.

She swept the distance titles and added another historic mark to her ledger. She crossed the finish line of the 5000 meters in 16:36.89, which is the ninth fastest mark in NCAA DIII history and barely missed another all-time top-10 mark in the 3000 meters, a list on which she sits third already.

Mooney also took home the honor USTFCCCA National Athlete of the Week on January 29 and February 12 this season.
