Holley High graduate and Allegheny College senior Kristina Martin has earned the North Coast Athletic Conference Indoor Track Distance Runner of the Week honors for her performance at the recent Kent St. Tuneup.

Martin placed third in the 3,000 meter run at the Tuneup with a time of 10:21.63 which bettered her previous personal best by over 15 seconds.

In posting what is also the fourth fastest 3,000 time in the Allegheny program’s history, she was the top Division 3 finisher in the 52 runner field.

A two year team captain, Martin was also the top finisher for the Allegheny cross-country squad at four invitationals this past fall. She earned All North Coast Athletic Conference honors by placing ninth at the conference championships.

A History major, she is the daughter of Jeffrey and Clara Martin of Holley.

During her scholastic days at Holley, Martin earned four letters in track and two in cross-country.
