Parshall Named Spartan Athlete-of-the-Week

YORK, Pa. – Capital Athletic Conference Women's Cross Country Champion Mandy Parshall has been selected as the latest Spartan Athlete-of-the-Week for her triumphant performance at last Saturday's CAC Championships.

An outstanding runner, who has also won conference track titles in both the 800 and 1500 for two straight seasons, Parshall captured the 2010 women's cross country crown in an excellent 22:35.

Spartan head coach Erick Camodeca was ecstatic with Parshall's program-raising performance.
"Mandy was in third-place heading into the last mile," Spartan head coach Erick Camodeca said. "I knew that if she could find that final burst no one would catch her. She ran a terrific race today."

Parshall's conference title is a first for York's women's cross country program, which has been in existence since the early 1990s.

She will now turn her focus to next Saturday, November 13, and the NCAA Mideast Regionals.
