College Track

Southern Oregon's James Johnstone has been named the Red Lion Cascade Conference Runner of the Week.

Johnstone earned the award after an impressive performance in the 3,000-emter steeplechase at San Francisco State last Friday.

The senior won the event in a time of 9:11.31. The time was the fastest in the NAIA this year, good enough for an "A" qualifying mark, and was also the third fastest time in school history. The school record was set by SOU Hall of Famer Kelly Jensen in 1978 with a time of 8:53.9.

Southern Oregon will travel to the Willamette Distance Carnival this Friday and Saturday.
