LOGAN, Utah - Utah State senior Dillon Maggard has been named the Mountain West Men's Cross Country Athlete of the Week, it was announced Tuesday by the conference office.

Overall, it is the third weekly cross country honor for Maggard this season and in his career, having won two MW track and field weekly honors last season. Maggard's three award wins this season have come in just four races for the senior.

Additionally, Maggard is the first MW men's runner to earn three weekly awards since BYU's Miles Batty, Jr., in 2010.

For his efforts, Maggard was also named the America First Credit Union USU Student-Athlete of the Week on Monday.

The Kirkland, Wash., native placed fifth individually at the Louisville-hosted Pre-National race last weekend. In the 8-kilometer run, Maggard set a personal best with a time of 23:12.1 in a race featuring 282 runners from 41 schools, eight of which were nationally ranked. Maggard helped lead the 27th-ranked Aggies to a sixth-place team finish, placing ahead of No. 5 Arkansas and No. 19 Georgetown.

The Aggies are back in action at the Mountain West Championships in two weeks. New Mexico will host the race on Friday, Oct. 27.
