SDSU Runner Honored

SDSU Runner Honored

South Dakota State’s Trent Lusignan was named Athlete of the Week on Tuesday by The Summit League for his performance at the Griak Invitational last weekend.

Lusignan finished 19th overall at the Griak Invitational with his final time of 24:47.8. His time at the Griak Invitational is a new personal best for him in an 8k race.

Lusignan’s time of 24:47.8 currently ranks as the fastest 8k in The Summit League in 2013. His time is also 10 seconds shy of the top-10 all-time in The Summit League.

This is his second career Summit League Athlete of the Week award in cross country. He also won a Summit League Athlete of the Week award last year in track and field.

The Jackrabbit men have combined for three of the five Athlete of the Week awards in 2013. Joel Reichow won back-to-back awards earlier this year.

The Jackrabbits will be hosting their annual SDSU Classic this Friday night at 6 p.m. at the Edgebrook Golf Course in Brookings.
