â€“ South Dakota Stateâ€™s Trent Lusignan has been named The Summit Leagueâ€™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.
