For the first time in any sport, a Fighting Squirrel has been named USA South Rookie of the Year.

Cross country standout Kali Carr, of Staunton, had already been named both USA South Runner and Rookie of the Week twice this fall. The freshman ran a season-best time of 20:03 at the 5,000-meter Disney Cross Country Invitational, placing 72nd out of 305 runners. Carr’s best 6,000-meter effort this fall was a time of 24:56 at the season-ending Shenandoah University Invitational.

Carr’s teammate, Wendy Deptula ’16, was named to the USA South All-Sportsmanship Team.
