NORTHFIELD, Minn. – Last weekend, Matt Wilkinson (Fy./Minnetonka, Minn./Minnetonka) took advantage of the opportunity to compete on his home course, cruising to a 13-second margin of victory at the Running of the Cows meet. It was his first collegiate victory, and on Tuesday, he was recognized as the MIAC men’s cross country athlete-of-the-week.

The field for the meet included 179 runners representing 13 teams, four of which were regionally-ranked. There were only two other first-years among the meet’s top-25 finishers. Carleton was competing without two of its top runners and finished sixth.

Carleton is off this weekend and will see split-squad action on Saturday, Oct. 14 with a portion of the team heading to the Lewis & Clark Invitational in Estacada, Ore. The rest of the Knights will race at the St. Boni Invitational hosted by Crown College.
