Augustana senior Hannah Hottle (Monmouth-Roseville HS, Monmouth, Ill.) has been selected as the “Women’s Track Athlete of the Week” in the College Conference of Illinois & Wisconsin, it was announced today. Hottle won the 800 meter run at the Western Illinois Lee Calhoun Memorial Relays, which was held on April 8 & 9 at Hanson Field, with a time of 2:14.04. This time qualified her for the NCAA Division III outdoor championships and is the fifth fastest time in school history.

Hottle, a team captain, came into the 2011 outdoor track and field season off of a great indoor season that saw her compete in the 800 at the NCAA Division III national meet, adding yet another achievement to her already lengthy list of accomplishments as an Augustana runner. In addition to qualifying for the national meet, Hottle was named co-MVP of the indoor team and set a new school record in the 600 meter run with a time of 1:37.73.

While this year’s outdoor season is still young, Hottle has found great success early on. She won the 800 at the Wartburg Select Meet on Saturday, April 2 in Waverly, Iowa. She was also an individual place winner in the 3000 meter run at the St. Ambrose dual meet to open the season.

Hottle has also had great success on the track in previous seasons. Last year, Hottle was a qualifier for the 800 at the NCAA Division III national meet. She is the school record holder in the 3000 meter steeplechase with a time of 11:30.95, as well as being a member of the school record 3200 meter relay team, who were clocked in a time of 9:21.93. Over her career, Hottle has been named the team’s Most Valuable Freshmen, two time indoor MVP, outdoor MVP, and team captain.

Hottle is also very successful academically. She has been named academic all-conference multiple times. This past winter, Hottle was named the recipient of the Jack Swartz award, which is given to one male and one female athlete from each CCIW school who displays great athletic ability as well as hard work in the classroom.

The daughter of Buff and Tammi Hottle of Monmouth, Hannah is a biology major.
