LakePoint, GA. – Lipscomb senior Juan Gonzalez has been named the ASUN Outdoor Men’s Track Athlete of the Week, as announced by the league offices on Wednesday.
The win is the second outdoor award for Gonzalez so far this season, and fifth ASUN weekly honor for his career. He had previously won an indoor award earlier this year and twice last season.
The California native competed in the 5000m at the Mt. SAC Relays over the weekend, finishing 20th with a time of 14:14.64.
The mark was good enough to set a new school and personal record for the event.
He now ranks first in the ASUN in the event, giving him the top time in two conference events as he is also first in the 10,000m.
His time is currently 31st in the NCAA East Region and 100th in the nation.
Gonzalez and the Bisons will hit the track again this weekend as they take on the Georgia Tech Invitational and the Virginia Challenge.
