Greeneville, Tenn.- Hannah Cook earned Freshman of the Year honors for the South Atlantic Conference with her third place finish in the 2012 Food Lion SAC Championship on Saturday morning, while the Tornados women's cross country team finished sixth overall.

"The women ran incredible," said head coach Thomas Cason. "They all pulled together and made conference history for our program."

Cook finished the 5K course in 20:00.4, pacing the Tornados and finishing just :33 behind SAC runner of the year Keeley Wood of Wingate. Cook was also named the SAC All-Freshman Team.
