COLUMBIA, S.C. --- Georgia junior Kristie Krueger has won the 2010 Southeastern Conference Cross Country Championships in Columbia, S.C., on Monday morning.
Krueger topped the field on the 6k course at Fort Jackson to become just the second Georgia runner to capture an SEC cross country victory in school history (Sarah Madebach, 2007).
"This was a natural progression over the last three years for a runner of her caliber," said Bulldog head track and field coach Wayne Norton. "At last year's meet, she showed me she would be this year's favorite. This is a major accomplishment. In their three years together, Coach (Jeff) Pigg has done a fabulous job in guiding her development. He continues to build on a nice distance tradition that our former distance coaches have established."
After taking fourth overall at the 2009 SEC Championships as a sophomore, Krueger had twice been named the SEC Female Athlete of the Week this season.
More details regarding Krueger's race along with full individual and team results are expected be available shortly.
