Colton McNinch, biochemistry sophomore, earns the Kansas Collegiate Athletic Conference Runner of the Week after his performance Saturday at the Wichita Wild Wind Cross Country Festival hosted by Friends University.

McNinch, a 2010 KCAC All-Conference selection, finished first out of 102 runners with a time of 25:45. His time was a career best in the 8K race and led Southwestern to a second place finish among 14 competing teams.

The team’s next meet takes place Sept. 17 at the Missouri Southern Stampede.
