Sports Shorts 10/6/06: Hague earns top UAA honors

There won’t be much second guessing for this decision.

After a standout performance at the Loyola Lakefront Invitational Saturday, the UAA honored fourth-year runner Brian Hague as UAA athlete of the week Wednesday. It was the first such honor of his career.

Asked to shoulder more of the burden on a young cross country team, the veteran did his part over the weekend, kicking his way to 22nd place out of 195 entries in the eight-kilometer race. He crossed the line in 25:36, leaving a number of his Division I competitors in the dust.
