MONTREAT, N.C. -- What will you remember about the 2012-13 year in Montreat College Athletics? The historic? The hysterical? Or the heart-stopping? Any way you look at it, the past year in sports at Montreat College had an overwhelming number of fascinating moments.
Senior Captain Lauren Kelly closed out her career on Saturday at the Capital City Half Marathon in Columbus, OH. Kelly, who finished in a time of 1:45:49, finished well short of the national standard she was seeking (1:33:00), but Coach Herbert had nothing but positive things to say about his women's team captain. "Lauren has had an excellent year," explains Coach Herbert. "For the first time in her time as a Cavalier, we've been able to keep her relatively healthy and she's run very well. Today was not our day and she missed that standard, but Lauren's been the heart and soul of our team all year. I've got no regrets with her, we gave it our best effort, she trained hard and went to physical therapy and did everything she could for this team, so I couldn't be more proud."
On the women's side, the Cavalier track team finished 5th at the AAC Championships on Thursday, despite a number of excellent performances by the Cavaliers. "We had some good performances today, as well as some mediocre ones, but what we're gaining is experience. We're a young team and we're building, so this was a learning experience for the ladies as our team continues to grow and develop," said Coach Herbert.
