Tinney named GLIAC women's track athlete of the year

Western Reserve’s Steph Tinney was selected as the GLIAC women’s indoor track athlete of the year for her outstanding junior season running track at Ashland.

For part of this season, Tinney had the best time in the country in the 400 meters. Currently, she has the second best clocking in the nation. At the GLIAC championships, she set a conference record in the 400, winning the race in 55.33. Tinney was part of the 4x4 relay team that claimed a silver medal and she ran on the distance relay that was third.

"There aren’t enough awards for Steph Tinney," AU head coach Jud Logan said. "There aren’t words to describe how she leads by example, the way she runs her workouts, the way she embraces A.G.’s (Kruger) weightroom workouts. She’s the energy and pulse of the women’s team."

Tinney has earned a berth at the NCAA Division II national championship meet, which will be held Mar. 12-13 in Albuquerque, N.M.
