AUBURN, Ala. - Auburn's Kevin Wyss was named the SEC Freshman Runner of the Week following his performance at the Florida State Invitational, the conference office announced Tuesday.
"Kevin had a strong run in Tallahassee, and it is very good to see him running well," head coach Mark Carroll said. "Hopefully, Kevin can be one of our top-seven scorers in the coming weeks as we prepare for the SEC Championships and NCAA Regionals."
Wyss recorded his second top-15 finish of the year, clocking a season-best 8K time of 25:54.53. The Albuquerque, N.M., native was the second scorer for the Tigers, helping Auburn to its third top-three finish of the year.
