ATHENS, Ohio - Ohio University track student-athlete Juli Accurso (Casstown, Ohio) has been named the MAC Women’s Scholar-Athlete of the Week, the league office announced Wednesday.
It marks the third time Accurso has earned the award this academic year, as she also garnered the accolade twice during the 2013 cross country campaign.
Accurso made her 2014 debut in the 10000m run in grand fashion Friday, capturing the event title at the Hillsdale College “Gina” Relays. Her first-place time of 34:18.12 was the 17th-fastest in the NCAA East Region this season and should qualify Accurso for NCAA Regional competition in May. The time also was the fastest in the MAC this season by more than 30 seconds.
A four-time All-American and 2013 Academic All-American, Accurso is a senior majoring in linguistics and French. She maintains an impressive 3.897 GPA.
