The Mid-American Conference selected senior cross country runner Juli Accurso as the Female Scholar Athlete of the Week Wednesday.
The runner from Casstown, Ohio had already received the award once this season. She was awarded the second after she won the individual title for the third-consecutive year this past weekend at the 2013 MAC Cross Country Championship.
The three-time All-American is the first female runner in league history to win the MAC individual cross-country title for three-consecutive years.
Accurso claimed her 6k title after crossing the finish line in 20:37.46. Her first-place finish marks the third time the Bobcat has finished in the top-5 of a race this season.
Accurso also holds a 3.882 grade point average in French and Linguistics and plans to graduate this spring.
