DENTON, Tex. (9/18/07) If freshman Patrick Strong keeps this up, he’s going to be getting more than just weekly awards. The North Texas freshman from New Zealand was named the Sun Belt Conference Cross Country Runner of the Week for the second consecutive week.
Strong had another stellar performance at the North Texas Invitational on Saturday, finishing in second place with a time of 25:17 in the 8k race. His first two races of the season, and his Division I career, have seen him place first and second.
North Texas as a team finished in second and now takes a few weeks off before its next race. The Mean Green take part in the Memphis Twilight on October 5, the final tune-up before the Sun Belt Conference Championship.
