Wichelt Tabbed for Second Laurel
Oskaloosa–Deane Wichelt (Jr., Durant, Iowa, Mechanical Engineering) had a solid showing last Saturday and his efforts helped guide him to Midwest Collegiate Conference Men’s Cross Country Runner of the Week honors Monday.
Wichelt, now a two-time honoree, led the Statesmen at the Dean White Invitational hosted by Doane College. His time of 28:33 on the 8K course was good for 24th place out of 68 runners.
The junior has led WPU in three of the squad’s four races this year. It is the second award for William Penn in 2013.
