University of Southern Indiana’s sophomore Titus Winders has been named the Great Lakes Valley Conference Men’s Indoor Track Athlete of the Week for the second time this 2019-20 indoor season, in an announcement by the league office Wednesday afternoon.
Winders placed ninth in the mile at the Meyo Invitational behind mainly NCAA I competitors with a new NCAA II provisional qualifying time of 4 minutes, 7.42 seconds. Winders’ mile time is currently 12th in all of NCAA II and it jumped him up to fourth all-time in USI history.
This is the fifth GLVC weekly honor Winders has received in his USI running career. He now boasts two GLVC Runner of the Week awards in cross country (October 2018 and October 2019) along with his three GLVC Track Athlete of the Week awards (December 2018, December 2019 and February 2020).
Up Next: Winders and the Screaming Eagles go up north to Allendale, Michigan for the GVSU Big Meet held on Feb. 14-15.
