John Jacob's record-setting race earns him another SCAC honor

DENVER - A record-setting performance by John Jacob has earned the senior from Aurora, Ohio another SCAC Men's Runner of the Week award. 

Jacob broke Alberto Rodriguez's school record on Saturday at the Fort Hays State Tiger Open with an 8-kilometer time of 26 minutes, 14.5 seconds to place 13th individually. 

The senior has now been named the SCAC runner of the week twice in the past three weeks following his Week 5 honor for his third-place performance at the New Mexico Highlands Jam on Sept. 28.  

Jacob and the Wildcats are off this week and next before the conference championships Saturday, Nov. 2 at Colorado College.
