Lusignan In Spotlight Again

Lusignan In Spotlight Again

– South Dakota State’s Trent Lusignan has been named The Summit League’s Athlete of the Week for his performance at the Pre-Nationals last weekend in Terre Haute, Ind. This is the third time this year Lusignan has been named Athlete of the Week.

Lusignan posted a final time of 23:49.65 at the meet to place 19th overall. He ran against runners from 11 nationally ranked teams. As a team, SDSU finished 29th out of 52.

His time of 23:49.65 now ranks as his new personal best; he broke his old mark of 24:47.8, which he set earlier this year at the Griak Invitational.

This is his fourth career Summit League Athlete of the Week award.

Lusignan and Joel Reichow have combined for five Athlete of the Week awards this year.

SDSU competes this weekend at the Mount Marty Invite as they prepare for The Summit League Cross Country Championships in Fort Wayne, Ind. on Nov. 2.
