WASHINGTON - Graduate student Mark Dennin (Gilbertsville, Pa./Boyertown) won the BIG EAST Cross Country Athlete of the Week honors for Week 4, as announced today from the league office. The All-American took the individual title at the Paul Short Run on September 28 among 332 runners to lead the then-No. 15 Hoyas to a third-place finish.

The Hoya men are tabbed third in the Mid-Atlantic Region and 20th nationally according to the most recent U.S. Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association polls.
