Emma Bates is the 2013 U.S. Women's Cross Country West Region Athlete of the Year

In case you're wondering who the top women's cross country athlete of the week is, you don't have to look any further than Boise State.

No, it's not someone from the Pac-12.  Rather, the Mountain West Conference.  Bates continued to roll in the West Regional last weekend, completing the 6-k course in 19:10.56.  Bates also won the Mountain West championship as well as a Pre-National Invitational title.  

Bates will test the field at the NCAA National Cross Country Championships this Saturday in Terre Haute, Indiana.
