Two HU indoor track runners tabbed Athlete of the Week

The Huntington University indoor track and field program was well-represented in the Crossroads League’s weekly honors.

Sophomore Emma Wilson was tabbed the Women’s Track Athlete of the Week while junior Noah Bise earned the Men’s Field Athlete of the Week badge.

Wilson collected wins in the 3,000-meter and distance medley relay, running the 1,600-meter leg, for the Foresters at the Indiana Wesleyan

University Midwest Classic over the weekend of Feb. 6 and 7. Her time of 9:45.65 in the 3K is tops in the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics (NAIA) this season while HU’s DMR time of 12:17.76 also leads the nation.

She currently holds the fastest 1000 meters and mile time in the NAIA as well. This is Wilson’s second CL indoor track weekly designation of the year.  

Bise brought home a pair of second-place finishes in long and triple jump from the Midwest Classic. His leap of 7.00 meters in long jump ranks him 11th among his NAIA peers across the nation while his mark of 13.44 meters in triple jump is a new Huntington record.

Next up for the Foresters is the Crossroads League Indoor Championships slated for Feb. 19 through 20.
