UK TrackField 300LEXINGTON, Ky. (11/8/13) – Three Kentucky cross country Wildcats earned honors from the Southeastern Conference, as the league office announced its annual awards on Friday.

Cally Macumber headlined the list of UK honorees, as she was named First Team All-SEC for the second-consecutive season.

Macumber placed seventh at the SEC Championships with a time of 20:35.82. She has won two meets this season and placed inside the top-10 at every race she has competed in during the 2013 cross country season.

Matt Hillenbrand picked up Second-Team All-SEC honors as he finished 12th overall in 24:17.19. He has now earned All-SEC honors in three straight seasons taking into account the 2013 indoor and outdoor track and field seasons.

Cassidy Hale was a SEC All-Freshman Team selection, as she was the No. 5 first-year runner to cross the finish line at the conference meet, 26th overall in 21:22.42. The newcomer has adjusted nicely to collegiate competition in 2013 having also produced top-30 performances, at the Bluegrass Invitational and Cowboy Jamboree earlier this season.

The first seven finishers at the SEC Championships earned First Team All-SEC honors, while finishers Nos. 8-14 were named to the Second Team. The first seven freshmen to finish were selected as SEC All-Freshman Team members.

UK returns to action for the NCAA Southeast Regional Championships, in Charlottesville, Va., on Friday, Nov. 15.
