The Oglethorpe cross-country teams gave out their season awards to both men's and women's teams over the weekend.
By vote of their teammates, Michael Caneega and AJ Romine were selected as MVPs for the men's team, and Tirzah Brown and Katy Galli for the women's team. The highly coveted Mother Carey’s Chicken Award (the name deriving from the colloquial name given the stormy petrel by inhabitants of the Carolinas) went to Jeet Budha Magar and Nicole Ostermann. The award is given to the team member who brings an extra special measure of team spirit throughout the season. Jake Godwin and Khadija Nisar were named to the SAA All-Sportmanship Team.
In addition, Coach Bob Unger announced that the 2013 squads will be captained by three individuals. Tirzah Brown, Katy Galli and Khadija Nisar will repeat their role as women’s team tri-captains. While the 2012 men's captain Michael Caneega will be joined by Daniel Reveles and Jake Godwin next fall.
