CEDAR CITY, Utah – Oct. 8 – Southern Utah’s Ryan Barrus earned his second conference award of the cross country season today when the Big Sky named him Athlete of the Week following a 21st-place finish at the Notre Dame Invitational on Friday.

The Thunderbirds raced to a ninth-place team finish in a field of 27 teams and over 200 runners, with Barrus leading the squad with a five-mile run time of 24:50.9. This award marks Barrus’ second of the season, the first being awarded after the senior raced to a second-place individual finish at the UC Riverside Invitational on Sept. 14.

Barrus will be back on the course on Oct. 19 when the T-Birds travel to Terre Haute, Ind., to race at the NCAA Pre-Nationals.
