Maggie Carroll, Illinois
SO, Brimfield, Ill./Brimfield
Carroll led Illinois to first place at this past weekend's Illini Challenge, while grabbing the top individual spot for herself in the process. The Challenge was just that as the meet was Carroll's first meet back after breaking her foot at the 2005 Big Ten Indoor Track meet. The Illinois sophomore not only cross the line first in a 5K time of 17:46.93, but shattered her previous 5k personal best by 15 seconds.
This is Carroll's first career Big Ten Runner of the Week award.
Last ILL ROW: Cassie Hunt (10/12/04)
