Abby Jahn First Women’s CCAC Runner of the Week

The top NAIA runner in the field and the third-fastest overall after a record-setting performance at the Elmhurst College Earlybird Invitational, IIT architecture undergraduate Abby Jahn has been named the Chicagoland Collegiate Athletic Conference Female Runner of the Week.

Jahn, a sophomore from Wasilla, Alaska, ran the four-kilometer course at Eldridge Park in a school-record 14:50 on Friday to lead the Scarlet Hawks to a fourth-place team finish.  Jahn’s showing also helped IIT establish a new team record for the fastest finish over that distance.

A total of 165 runners representing 16 teams competed in the race.
