University of Southern Indiana cross country senior Bastian Grau (Höchstadt, Germany) has been named the Great Lakes Valley Conference Men’s Runner of the Week for his efforts at the Lewis Conference Crossover Saturday.
Grau was the top finishing GLVC runner in a field of 361 competitors, as he crossed the line in 11th place with an 8,000-meter time of 25 minutes, 17.2 seconds. The meet also featured 10 of the top 25 teams in the nation.
This is the first GLVC Runner of the Week award for Grau and the second of the season for the Screaming Eagles, as senior James Cecil (Owensboro, Kentucky) won the award for the week of September 6.
