Anna Murdock wins 2014-15 HCAC Female Athlete of the Year


Franklin College graduate Anna Murdock added another win to her long list of achievements at Franklin College.

Murdock was recognized as the Heartland Collegiate Athletic Conference’s Female Athlete of the Year for the 2014-15 season after winning a national title and being a three-sport most valuable player.

The award is selected in a vote of the 10 HCAC schools following completion of each athletic year.

Murdock is now the second Franklin student-athlete to be honored as HCAC player of the year. Kyle Linville received the HCAC male award in 2013-14.

Murdock finished her collegiate career by winning a national championship in the 800-meter run at last Saturday’s NCAA Division III Outdoor Track and Field National Championships. She was victorious by over one second to become Franklin’s first individual event national champion.

The Trafalgar native also received All-American honors at the 2015 NCAA Division III Indoor Track and Field National Championships in March with a finish of eighth-place.

Murdock received the athletic department’s Jenny Johnson-Kappes Award, which honors Franklin’s top senior female athlete.
