2020-2021 Athlete of the Year
Lubna Suied, who finished as the women's cross country program's first-ever individual national champion, placed first in five of six races on the season. Her stellar performance helped the Lady Tiger cross country team capture the national championship at the NJCAA Division II Cross Country National Championships held in Fort Dodge, Iowa.
Suied was also the region champion, lifting Cowley to its fourth straight conference title and a second place finish in the region.
She recently finished as the conference and region champion in three events at the Jayhawk Conference/Region Championships. Suied placed first in the 1,500-meter, 5,000-meter, and 10,000-meter runs. She won every event she competed in and broke the school record in the 1,500-meter run with a time of 4:43.34.
"I remember thinking during my freshman year that I may not have made the right choice by coming to Cowley," Suied said. "Now, I don't want my two years at Cowley to be over. This is a blessing to win this award when there are so many amazing athletes at Cowley."
