Peterman, Monday earn conference academic honors

HIGH POINT, N.C. --- Lees-McRae College's Heather Peterman (Buford, Ga.) and Sarah Monday (Lexington, N.C.) have each been named to the Conference Carolinas Women's Cross Country Academic all-Conference team, announced league officials Monday.

Peterman earns a spot on the league's academic all-conference team for the second straight season, pacing the Bobcats in each race this fall while being named Lees-McRae's Female Student-Athlete of the Month for the month of September. The senior harrier posted perhaps her best performance at the Conference Preview Meet on October 4, finishing 30th with a time of 20:12.

Monday garners academic all-conference honors for the first time in her career, having posted a pair of strong performances this season. The Lexington, N.C. native turned in perhaps her best showing of the fall at the Buffalo Valley Stampede, placing 42nd.

Lees-McRae returns to the trials on Friday when the Bobcats travel to Concord, N.C. for the Conference Carolinas Championships.
