BIRMINGHAM, Ala. – Ole Miss women’s cross country senior Ryann Helmers has been named the SEC Women’s Co-Runner of the Week, the conference announced Tuesday morning.

Helmers led the No. 16 Rebel women to a perfect team score at home in the SEC Preview last Friday, as Ole Miss bested Florida, 15-48, thanks to the five scoring Rebels all placing within the top-five spots. Helmers crossed the line first, winning the women’s 6K race at 20:29.2 in her season debut – currently the top 6K time in the SEC this year.

Helmers was one of eight Rebels in the top-10 in a dominant race, the first home meet for Ole Miss since 2017 and a preview glimpse of the conference championship that will be held in Oxford on Oct. 28.
