TERRE HAUTE, Ind. -- Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology sophomore Noah Thomas has been named the Heartland Collegiate Athletic Conference Men's Track Athlete of the Week for his efforts at the Washington University (Mo.) Invitational last weekend.
Thomas set a school record in the 100-meter dash with a time that is the fastest in the NCAA Division III Great Lakes Region so far this season (10.91 seconds). His 100-meter mark also ranks 15th nationally in the latest NCAA Division III rankings.
Thomas also ran a time of 22.31 seconds in the 200-meter dash to come home second against a field that featured some of the top small college sprinters in the Midwest. His 200-meter mark currently stands No. 3 in the Great Lakes Region.
The award marked the third time during the 2018-19 academic year that Thomas has been named HCAC Track Athlete of the Week. He earned the honor twice during the indoor season and now for the first time during the outdoor campaign.
Rose-Hulman came home second among 10 teams in the Washington (Mo.) Invitational. The Fightin' Engineers return to action at the Eastern Illinois Invitational on Friday and Saturday.
