COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. - San Diego State senior Marianne Hogan has been named the Cross Country Athlete of the Week, the conference announced Wednesday. Hogan, who won the individual title at the UC San Diego Triton Classic on Saturday, earned her first league honor of the season and the fifth of her career.

The Bedford, Quebec, native completed the 6,000-meter course in 22 minutes, 6.1 seconds, more than eight seconds ahead of the next collegiate finisher Lisa Ohberg of Cal State Los Angeles (22:14.6). Hogan's first place finish led the Aztecs to a second place team finish at the Triton Classic.

Hogan now has a first and runner-up finish in four races this season. The individual crown on Saturday marked the third of her career.

San Diego State gets back into action on Oct. 19 when the Aztecs will travel to compete at the Fullerton invite.
