Senior track and field distance runner Sarah Gentry is this week's Blue Cross Blue Shield of North Carolina Athlete of the Week.


Each week the school selects a BCBSNC Athlete of the Week upon their performance from the previous week's action.


Sarah enjoyed a great Big South Conference Championship meet this past weekend. She won both the 800 and 1500 meters in her final Big South meet.

 Sarah took first place in the 1500 meters with a time of 4:32.81. She won by more than two seconds over Coastal Carolina’s Emily Marchini on Saturday.


Later in the day, Gentry won her second straight BSC championship in the 800 meters in record-breaking time. She set a school and Big South record in the 800 meters with a time of 2:10.21. Gentry also won the indoor championships in the 800 meters last February.


On Sunday, Sarah was named UNC Asheville Female Athlete of the Year.
