UNC Asheville middle distance runner Sarah Gentry was named as the Big South Women’s Track Athlete of the Week by the league on Thursday.


Gentry, a senior from Plano, Texas, turned in a pair of Conference season-best times over the weekend at the Charlotte Classic.  She took first in the 800-meter event with a school record time of 2:09.96 and placed ninth overall in the 1,500-meter event as she clocked in at 4:40.98.  She closed the meet out with a 56 second split in the 4x400 to help her relay team come in fifth overall.


Sarah and the Bulldog track teams are back in action this weekend when they travel to Western Carolina for the Benyon Catamount Classic on Friday and Saturday.
