MILWAUKEE - Senior Austin Wright of the MSOE men's cross country team has been named the Northern Athletics Collegiate Conference Athlete of the Week for Sept. 26, the conference office announced late Monday.
Wright led the Raiders to second place at the Roy Griak Invitational last Saturday in the Twin Cities. He placed fifth place in the race as MSOE finished behind only UW-Oshkosh, which is receiving votes in the national poll, and 27 points ahead of UW-River Falls. Wright ran a time of 27:53.1 on the day.
The Raiders hits the course once again next Saturday, this time running at the Warrior Invitational.
