Symmonds again named NWC Men's Athlete of the Week

Nick Symmonds (Fr., Bishop Kelly HS, Idaho) was named Northwest Conference Men's Athlete of the Week in track & field for the second time this season.

Symmonds earned the honor on Monday after winning the 1,500-meter run during the Oregon Mini Meet in Eugene on Saturday.

His time of 3:54.34 is an NCAA Division III provisional qualifier and is the top time in the conference this season. The time ranks No. 5 in WU history and makes him the fastest Bearcat in that event in 20 years.

Ironically, Symmonds' other NWC weekly award came directly after another performance at Hayward Field in Eugene. He won the 800 meters during the Oregon Preview on March 22 and won the conference honor the following Monday.
