Gonzalez nabs third career ASUN weekly award

LakePoint, Ga. – For the third time in his career and the first time this season, Lipscomb senior Juan Gonzalez has been named the ASUN Men’s Indoor Track Athlete of the Week, as announced by the league offices on Wednesday.

Gonzalez earned the honor after setting a new school record in the 3000m at the Husky Classic.

The California native finished 39th out of a competitive field of 109 runners, including ahead of runners from nine different Power Five schools, with a time of 8:11.59. The mark is the best in the ASUN for the event so far this season.

The win was Gonzalez’s third ASUN weekly award earning the honor two previous times last February, also for indoor.

This is also the third ASUN Runner of the Week win for the Bisons this year, after fellow senior Wayne Newman a pair of awards early in the season.  

The Bisons will be back on the track starting Feb. 23 for the ASUN Indoor Championships.
