Claire Brickson: Sagehen of the Week

Claire Brickson PO ’14

Madison, Wis.

Women’s Cross Country

With her career as a Sagehen winding down, Claire Brickson PO ’14 seems determined to leave a legacy. At last Saturday’s NCAA West Regional Championship, the senior ran her best race of the season, crossing the finish line in 10th place and earning a ticket to the the Division III National Championship this Saturday in Hanover, Ind. Brickson finished with a time of 22:38.25, over a minute faster than her time on the same course earlier this season—after finishing in a much more modest 12th place on Nov. 2 at the SCIAC Championships. Brickson’s time was the third fastest ever for a Sagehen runner at the Pomona-Pitzer course, a truly impressive feat. With just one race left in her career, look for Brickson to finish strong this weekend.
