Henderson, Shoemaker named to Academic All-Conference Team

HIGH POINT, N.C. --- Lees-McRae College's Hannah Henderson (Canvas, W. Va.) and Kira Shoemaker (Aiken, S.C.) have both been named to the 2010 Conference Carolinas Women's Cross Country Academic All-Conference Team, announced league officials Thursday.

Henderson is in the midst of another tremendous season for the Lady Bobcats, tallying three top-10 finishes so far this fall to pace LMC to a trio of top-five finishes. The junior harrier has totaled seven top-10 finishes in her two seasons with the Lady Bobcats, including six top-five finishes.

Shoemaker has put together another solid season for Lees-McRae, posting a pair of top-20 finishes in just three races. The senior has recorded seven top-10 finishes in her three seasons with the Lady Bobcats, including a sixth-place finish in the 2008 Conference Carolinas Championships.

Lees-McRae returns to the course on Nov. 5 when the Lady Bobcats travel to Charlotte, N.C. to take part in the Conference Carolinas Championship.
