Schroeder Named Patriot League Cross Country Runner of the Week
Sept. 16, 2013
CENTER VALLEY, Pa. – Sophomore Steve Schroeder is shredding up the competition, having most recently won the Navy Invitational for his second consecutive individual title this season. Last week’s first place finish garnered him the Patriot League M-F Athletic Runner of the Week, announced by the conference office on Monday, Sept. 16.
Schroeder has now won back-to-back Patriot League weekly honors and does not see like he is slowing down. The sophomore runners’ finishing time of 23:55.69 at the Navy Invitational was not only 13 seconds faster than the next finisher but was the fourth fastest time in the history of the USNA Cross Country Course.
Navy travels to Van Cortlandt Park in Bronx, N.Y. to compete in the Iona Meet of Champions on Saturday, Sept. 21. The meet wills start at 10:15 a.m. and will have schools such as Alabama, Indiana, Army, Brown, Harvard, Yale and Cincinnati.
