KANSAS CITY, Mo. --- Two Carlow University men’s cross country runners earned 2018 NAIA Scholar-Athlete awards, the association announced this week.

In order to be nominated by an institution, a student-athlete must maintain a minimum grade point average of 3.5 on a 4.0 scale and must have achieved a junior academic status to qualify for this honor.

Timothy Richardson (JR/Monongahela, Pa.) and Christopher Woodley (SR/Northern Cambria, Pa.) earned the honor for Carlow.

Woodley, a biology major, ran in six of the seven races Carlow competed in this season. His average time this year was 31.28, with his best time this year coming at the River States Conference Championship, where he finished in 29.59.

He consistently led the team in scoring, and earned the RSC Champions of Character award.

Richardson, a human resource management and technology major, earned the second award for the Celtics.
