CHICAGO --- Cold, windy, rainy conditions could not slow the
efforts of Olivet Nazarene University's Dylan Creger (Almont, Mich.) at the
University of Minnesota Roy Griak Invitational on Saturday, nor could they
derail the sophomore from earning Chicagoland Collegiate Athletic Conference
Men's Cross Country Runner of the Week accolades for the second time this
season on Tuesday.
Creger also netted the honor during the week ending Sept. 8.
On an 8K course known for its tough hilly conditions, Creger
ran a 26:16 to place 30th in a field of 458 runners from all three NCAA levels
and the NAIA ranks.
As a team, NAIA No. 6-ranked Olivet Nazarene University
finished 14th out of 44 teams.
