MILWAUKEE, Wis. (naccsports.org) --- Concordia University Wisconsin's Mackenzie Larsen (Appleton, Wis.) and Concordia University Chicago's Thomas McNamara (Foristell, Mo.) have been named the Northern Athletics Collegiate Conference (NACC) Indoor Track and Field Student-Athletes of the Week for the week of Feb. 10-16, 2020, as selected by the league's sports information directors.
Curran, a sophomore, won the 3,000-meter run (11:34.65) and ran on CUW's distance medley relay team (14:36.17) at the UW-Platteville Invitational. Her 3K time ranks seventh on the NACC performance list, while the Falcons' DMR time ranks fourth.
McNamara, a senior, won the 5,000-meter run at the Grand Valley State Big Meet (Friday) with a school-record time of 15:04.73, eclipsing the previous record by 20 seconds. Due to the mark being posted on an oversized 300-meter track, the time was converted to 15:14.41 to reflect a 200-meter track. The converted time ranks second in the NACC.
