MILLEDGEVILLE, Ga.- Sophomore Dani Destiche (Snellville, Ga.) of the Georgia College & State University women's cross country team was named Georgia College Athlete of the Week. The announcement was made today (Sept. 4) by the sports information office. The award honors the top performance by a Bobcat during the week ending Aug. 31.
