LOGAN, Utah - For the third time this year Utah State's Trever Ball has been named the Xbox Live Western Athletic Conference Athlete of the Week. Ball also claimed honors on Sept. 6 and Sept. 19.

Ball has been USU's top finisher in all three events this year, placing second in the season opening American Western Heritage Center Open and then winning the Montana State Invitational.
Idaho's Dee Olson was the women's runner of the week. Utah State nominated Tiffany Strickland, who had finished 19th at the Notre Dame meet.
The Aggies will compete at the NCAA Pre-Nationals on Oct. 15 before participating in the WAC Championships in Boise, Idaho on Oct. 29.
