Kraft honored by the Summit League
Nine men from the Summit League made the team, with Drew Kraft being the lone Jackrabbit to receive the honor.
To qualify for the award, a student-athlete must have at least a cumulative grade point average of at least 3.30. They also must have completed at least one full academic year with their current institution and participated in 50 percent of their team’s competitions.
At the Summit League Championships last Saturday Kraft finished 17th with a time of 26:34.7 and helped the Jackrabbits win their third title in four years.
The Jackrabbits will be back in action this Friday at the Fall Finale in Collegeville, Minn. The men’s 8k is scheduled to start at 5 p.m.
