Former Tiger XC runner Chris Striegel was named Great Lakes Valley Conference Runner of the Week after his second place finish at the Notre Dame’s National Catholic Invitational. The meet was full of Division 1 runners and the Bellarmine Knight only followed one runner in the 8k race with a time of 25:00.2.

“He showed he will be a major force in the GLVC and D-2,” said Jim Vargo, BU’s director of cross country and track and field, after the race.

Striegel transferred from the University of Louisville last year, and he led the Knights to a runner-up team finish in the College Division.

Striegel and Bellarmine’s next race will be on October 3rd when they participate in the Greater Louisville Classic.
