WAUKESHA, Wis. (WLCSports.com) - Wisconsin Lutheran College's Jacob Jodat (Pewaukee, Wis.) has been named the Northern Athletics Collegiate Conference Men's Cross Country Student-Athlete of the Week for the events of Sept. 11-17, as selected by the league's sports information directors. This is Jodat's second NACC weekly award of the season and third of his career.
Jodat finished third overall in a field of 165 runners Saturday at the UW-Whitewater Tom Hoffman Invitational. The senior completed the 8K course in less-than-ideal race conditions in a time of 27:33.4. It was the 10th career top 10 finish for the Warriors' senior.
Jodat and the Warriors are back on the course Friday in Rock Island, Illinois, for the Brissman-Lundeen Invitational hosted by Augustana. The men's 8K race is scheduled for a 3:45 p.m. start.
