Matt Wolfe Named WAC Cross Country Athlete of the Week

Oct. 12, 2010

DENVER - Louisiana Tech's Matt Wolfe was named the WAC Men's Cross Country Athlete of the Week following his career-best performance last weekend.

Wolfe, a sophomore, ran a career-best four-mile race, recording a time of 20:09 at the Asics McNeese State Cowboy Stampede on Oct. 9, in Lake Charles, La. Wolfe's performance helped lead the Bulldogs to a tie-breaker win over LSU, giving them a second-place finish in a field of eight teams. The Bossier City, La., native has led Louisiana Tech in both meets this season, and has led them in three consecutive meets dating back to last year's WAC championships, where he finished 36th overall.

Louisiana Tech returns to the cross country trails on Saturday in Shreveport at the Centenary Invitational. The race is set to begin at 9 a.m.
