CHESTNUT HILL, Mass. - Boston College's Liv Westphal was named ACC Cross Country Performer of the Week for the second time this season, as announced by the league on Tuesday, Oct. 1. The Limoges, France product led the way for the Eagles at the Coast-to-Coast Battle in Beantown - BC XC Invite, taking the top spot on the team.

Westphal took third overall in the field of 146 runners this past Friday on the five-kilometer course at Boston's Franklin Park. She finished with a time of 17:00, just nine seconds behind the lead runner. Westphal's finish led the 24th-ranked Eagles to a fourth-place finish in a 14-team meet that included some of the top teams in the country, including No. 1 Providence, No. 3 Oregon and No. 9 Cornell.

Westphal garnered this same accolade just two weeks ago after her first-place finish at the UMass Invitational.

The Eagles will return to action on Oct. 12 for the New England Championships.
