by Brian DeCandia, sports information graduate assistant

MILLEDGEVILLE, Ga. – Junior cross country runner Daniel Horseman (Cohutta, Ga.) has been awarded Georgia College Athlete of the Week for the week ending Nov. 21. This is his third athlete of the week honor.

Horseman took 25th this weekend at the NCAA Southeast Regional Championships, helping the team to a ninth place finish. Pacing the Bobcats for the fifth time this season, Horseman crossed the finish line in the 10K race at 32:51, shattering the previous school record set in 2008 (Rob Manning, 33:56) by over a full minute.

The regionals brought a close to the 2010 season for Bobcat cross country, a year that saw Horseman snap both the 8K and 10K distance school records. The GC men also finished in the top three in each of their first six races, including a victory at the Young Harris Invitational. Horseman became the seventh All-Peach Belt Conference men’s runner in school history.

The Georgia College Department of Athletics, back-to-back winners of the PBC Commissioner's Cup, sponsors 10 varsity athletic programs at the NCAA Division II level. As a Division II program, Bobcat Athletics prides itself on balancing the life of the student-athlete, evidenced by the teams' multiple appearances in post-season competition as well as documented academic success and community-service involvement.
