Swart Named CVAC Runner of the Week

Carla Swart of Lees-McRae College has been selected as the NCAA Division II Carolinas-Virginia Athletic Conference women's cross counrty runner of the week, announced by the CVAC office this afternoon.

Lees-McRae will host the Bobcat Invitational this Saturday afternoon, coinciding with the College's homecoming weekend.
