For the second time this season, Brett Meyer of Fort Hays State track and field has been named the MIAA Track Athlete of the Week. Meyer earns his honor this time following a strong performance at an elite invitational over the past weekend.
Meyer represented Fort Hays State at the Drake Relays on Saturday where he was the only collegiate runner in the mile run. He clocked a fourth place time of 4:07.44 in difficult conditions of wind and rain.
On the national performance list, Meyer currently sits fourth in the 1,500-meters alongside his automatic qualification mark of 3:44.18. He was previously named the MIAA Track Athlete of the Week on April 9.
Next up for the senior is the 2019 installment of the MIAA Outdoor Track and Field Championships which will be hosted this weekend (May 3 - 5) at Central Missouri.
