Lusignan Repeats Honor

Lusignan Repeats Honor

The Summit League named South Dakota State’s Trent Lusignan Athlete of the Week for his performance at the SDSU Classic. Lusignan won the 8k run with his final time of 24:52.20.

Lusignan and the Jackrabbits won their annual home race with 27 total points. Four Jackrabbits finished in the top-15 at the SDSU Classic.

This is the second consecutive Athlete of the Week award for Lusignan and the fourth time this year a SDSU runner has won the award. Joel Reichow won back-to-back Athlete of the Week awards earlier this year.

His time of 24:47.8 still ranks as the best 8k time in The Summit League in 2013.

The Jackrabbits do not compete this weekend as they prepare for the Bradley Classic on Oct. 18 in Peoria, Ill.
