CHICAGO, Ill. --- A near-personal-best performance during the week of Sept. 18-24 has earned St. Ambrose University's Ashley Plumb (Macomb, Ill.) Chicagoland Collegiate Athletic Conference Women's Cross Country Runner of the Week recognition, it was announced by the league office Wednesday afternoon.

Plumb, a junior, finished first among CCAC runners and eighth overall in a field of 244 competitors at the Augustana College Brissman-Lundeen Invitational on Friday. Despite heat indexes over 100 degrees, Plumb managed a 19:37 over the 5K course, which was just two seconds off her all-time best mark.

As a team, St. Ambrose placed fifth in the meet out of a total of 17 squads.
