BURNSVILLE, Minn.(KWSN) - Augustana junior Adam Braun was named Northern Sun Intercollegiate Conference athlete of the week for his opening-week performance in a release by the conference on Tuesday afternoon.
Braun placed third overall at the third annual Augustana Twilight Invitational with a time of 18:45.45 on the four-mile course. Although placing third overall, Braun was the top Division II finisher on the course. Braun led the Vikings to a runner-up finish, losing only to Division I Nebraska.
A junior from Shoreview, Minn., Braun collects NSIC athlete of the week honors for the second time in his career. Braun earned All-America honors last season at the NCAA Championships while helping the Vikings to a fourth-place finish -- the highest in program history.
Augustana is idle for the next two weeks before they trip to Minneapolis for the Roy Griak Invitational hosted by the University of Minnesota on Sept. 28.
