Danielle Hoop Named Mid-South Athlete of the Week, Hits NAIA A Standard

The University of the Cumberlands (UC) Track and Field team have made their transition from indoor to outdoor season as they competed this past weekend in the Charlotte 49er Classic. Numerous Patriots did well, but one Patriot lady ran away with the competition as she was honored by the Mid-South Conference (MSC).

UC's Danielle Hoop (Owenton, KY) is the Mid-South Conference Women's Track Athlete of the Week, conference officials announced on Tuesday. The weekly award is the first of the season awarded by the conference.

Hoop won the 3,000 meter steeplechase at the 49er Classic over the weekend. The senior won the 19 person event with a time of 11:06.56. Hoop's time was good enough to qualify for the NAIA Outdoor Track & Field National Championships with a national "A" standard time.
