College Sporting News has announced its honorees for this year’s CSN Senior Student-Athlete Award from the Minnesota Intercollegiate Athletic Conference. The 2006-2007 female and male winners are Hailey Harren of Gustavus Adolphus College and Kirby Carr of Bethel University.

A Selection Committee comprised of coaches, administrators and former MIAC athletes chose Harren and Carr from a group of 23 seniors nominated by the schools. They were honored for excellence on the playing field, coupled with superior academic performance and involvement in community service. This is the second year that College Sporting News has selected a Senior Student-Athlete of the Year from the MIAC.

Harren, a native of Cold Spring, Minn., finished eighth at the NCAA Division III Cross Country Championships last fall after winning the national individual title in 2005. She claimed the Minnesota Intercollegiate Athletic Conference and NCAA Central Region individual titles this past fall and was named both the MIAC and NCAA Central Region Runner of the Year. A political science and financial economics double major, Harren has compiled a 3.80 cumulative grade point average. Harren has also been very active in the community working as a Study Buddy at a local elementary school and visiting local nursing homes as a part of the Elders program.
