WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) -

UNCW junior Karlie Smiraglia was named the Colonial Athletics Association's Runner of the Week on Tuesday after winning the Blue & Gold Cross Country Invitational in Newark, Del., last weekend.

The Laurel, MD., native was clocked at 23 minutes, 33 seconds as she beat out 45 runners in the field.

 "Karli had a strong effort," said UNCW cross country coach Layne Schwier. "She wasn't feeling too great going into the race, but she's a competitor. Karli is from Maryland, so she's used to tougher, hillier courses. She knew how to run it and that helped her get the win on Saturday."
