CEDAR CITY, Utah – Sept. 17 – SUU Cross Country runner Ryan Barrus earned a nod from the Big Sky Conference this week, garnering an Athlete of the Week award after a second-place individual finish at the UC Riverside Invitational.

Barrus led the Thunderbirds to a second-place team finish on Saturday, crossing the finish line in second place with a time of 24:04.8 in the 8k. While Central Arizona’s Harry Mulenga won the race with first-place time of 22:58.7, Barrus’ time broke into Southern Utah’s records on the course, ranking second behind Cameron Levins’ 2011 time of 22:58.7.
