She crossed the finish line in the six-kilometer race in 21 minutes, 39.1 seconds to defeat all but one of 350 competitors. Macy, who captured the individual title in the MSSU Stampede last week, led the Gorillas to a third-place team finish among 34 competing schools. The senior is a native of Albion, Neb. where he competed at Boone Central High School.

Others nominated: Lindsay Cuadra, Emporia State; Liz Damman, Nebraska-Kearney; Megan Glamann, Central Missouri; Twishanna Williams, Lincoln. 

Volkert made a successful season debut Saturday (Sept. 28) racing to the individual meet title in the Maroon Division II field in the 28th annual Roy Griak Invitational hosted by the University of Minnesota.

Volkert helped the Gorillas to a sixth place team finish in the meet.  

Others nominated: Jacob Bull, Emporia State; Kevin Carder, Nebraska-Kearney; Laban Sialo, Central Missouri.
