WASHINGTON - Senior Adriana Hooks was selected for her first GEICO Student-Athlete of the Week award of this season this week after leading the Eagles with her second consecutive First Team All-Patriot League finish at the 2018 cross country championship meet on Saturday.

Hooks battled well with the front pack in adverse conditions, navigating the soggy 6,000-meter course in 21:55.20 to improve on her 2017 finish with a third-place overall crossing. This is the third All-Patriot League finish for Hooks, and the second-consecutive top-five placing at the league's cross country championship meet.

The Eagles will be back on the line for one final time this season on Friday, Nov. 9, at the NCAA Mid-Atlantic Regional Championships, hosted by Penn State. For the latest on American University Cross Country, stay tuned to AUEagles.com and follow the team on Twitter @AU_TrackXC.
