Saint Louis University sophomore athletic training major Hilary Orf became the first Billiken to claim Atlantic 10 Cross Country All-Conference honors after placing 13th at the A-10 Championships Saturday morning at Forest Park in St. Louis.
The meet was run on a muddy course at Central Fields in Forest Park. Both the men's and women's team finished 11th, with Orf leading the women and senior Neal Rodrigues leading the men' squad.
"Hilary claiming an All-Conference honor speaks volumes to the direction the program is headed," SLU head coach Jon Bell said. "It couldn't have happened to anyone more deserving. She has worked hard and is starting to mature as a runner.
