Lake Forest College cross country runner Jorge Villanueva has been named Forester Athlete of the Week for his performance at the Midwest Conference Championship Meet on Saturday.
Villanueva's third-place finish in the 8k was the best in Lake Forest College's men's cross country history. His time of 25:18.5 is more than 20 seconds faster than his previous career-best and ranks second in team annals. Also, he became the Forester men's program's first four-time all-conference performer.
Lake Forest matched the best team finish in school history, placing third for the fourth time in the last five years.
Forester Athletes of the Week are selected by the Athletic Department on Thursdays.
