After setting a school record and leading a sweep of the top three finishers last weekend at The University of Texas at Tyler Cross Country Invitational, sophomore runner Ben Donnan (Paris, TX) has been named the American Southwest Conference’s Runner of the Week.
Donnan’s time of 26:07 in the 8K race not only won the meet, but also set a new record for UT Tyler. Led by Donnan, the Patriots won the meet and had five of the top eight finishers, including the top three runners.
Donnan was a member of the All-ASC first team his freshman year; this is his first ASC weekly honor.
The Patriots' next test will be this weekend at Dallas Baptist University. The team has won both meets they have competed in so far this season.
