Women's cross country runner Kari Hardt has been named ASU's Female Athlete of the Week for the week ending October 10th. Her spectacular performance in the 5,000m race helped the Sun Devils beat multiple elite teams, including Florida State and Providence.
Hardt was the top finisher for the Sun Devil women at the Notre Dame Invitational in South Bend, Ind., on Friday as she placed 18th overall in the 5,000m race. Her finish helped the Sun Devils, who entered the meet ranked 13th nationally, place fifth overall and ahead of two teams ranked higher than ASU, including No. 3 Florida State.
