KANSAS CITY, Mo. – For the second time this outdoor season, Lincoln sophomore Colby Jennings, Jr. has been selected as the MIAA Men’s Track Athlete of the Week. The league office announced the award, which was voted upon by a select panel of conference sports information directors, on Monday afternoon (April 12).
Jennings won three events at the Lincoln Open on Sunday (April 11), including the 200m, where his time of 21.16 currently stands as the fastest time in the MIAA and is tied for the ninth-quickest in NCAA Division II. Jennings additionally won the 400m in 48.29, and joined with Kewani Campbell, Rashane Bartlett and Reuben Nichols to help LU’s 4x400m relay team win in 3:14.27, the second-fastest mark in the MIAA.
This is the second career MIAA Athlete of the Week award for Jennings, who also received the honor on March 29 after a strong performance at the ESU Relays.
The Lincoln men’s track & field team will be in Warrensburg, Mo. on Friday (April 16) to compete in the Outdoor Mule Relays, hosted by the University of Central Missouri.
