BLOOMINGTON, Minn. – For the second time already on the season, Donson Cook-Gallardo (Sr./Moscow, Idaho/Moscow) earned MIAC Men’s Cross Country Athlete-of-the-Week honors. This is the 11th overall Athlete-of-the-Week honor for Cook-Gallardo, including ones for his performance in both indoor and outdoor track.

He led all MIAC runners this past weekend, taking second place at the St. Olaf Invitational with his time of 25:33.8 for the 8-kilometer course. This was his second consecutive top-2 result, and it helped the Knights finish fourth in the team competition.

Cook-Gallardo and the rest of the Carleton squad will look to continue their hot starts on Sept. 30 at Carleton’s own Running of the Cows.
