Men – Will Norris, Northwestern College

Will Norris of Northwestern College is the GPAC/Hauff Mid-America Sports Men's Cross Country Runner-of-the-Week.  Norris, a senior from Spirit Lake, Iowa, set the school record in winning the Mount Marty Invite held last weekend at the Youth Soccer Complex in Yankton, S.D. Norris helped lead Northwestern to the men's team title for the second straight meet. Norris completed the 8K course in a school-record time of 24:39, 11 seconds faster than the old record held by Dale Schoolmeester (24:50) set at Dakota Wesleyan in 1981. This was the second consecutive win for Norris, who also took first at the Briar Cliff Invite. Norris now has three top 10 finishes this season and nine for his career.
