Hewell Named NCCAA Student-Athlete of the Week

GREENVILLE, S.C. - Among all NCCAA Division I Women's Cross Country Runners, Emmanuel's own Makayla Hewell was named NCCAA Student-Athlete of the Week.

Hewell is a Junior from Alto, Ga who is running her third year for the Lions. At the Royals Twilight race in Charlotte, North Carolina, Makayla had an exceptional performance. Hewll led the way for the Lions running in the front pack, getting out to a strong first mile and holding.  As the front pack began to separate, Hewell kept herself in position to finish in the top five, battling her way to third place.  Hewell crossed the line in a new school record and lifetime personal best, covering the three loop course in a time of 17:38!

Congratulations to Makayla Hewell for being named NCCAA Student-Athlete of the Week.
