ST. PAUL, Minn. - St. Olaf sophomore Grant Wintheiser was named the MIAC men's cross country athlete of the week on Monday, his second honor this fall.

Wintheiser finished third at Minnesota's 272-runner Roy Griak Invitational on Saturday. He was the top runner among MIAC runners and helped St. Olaf to a seventh place finish in the 27-school field.

He won the league's athlete of the week honors two weeks ago as well, after he won the St. Olaf Invitational.

St. Olaf is off this weekend before competing at UW-La Crosse on Oct. 13 in the team's final tuneup for the MIAC Championships, which run Oct. 27 in St. Paul.
