Meyer Earns OVC Athlete of the Week

Keith Meyer

BRENTWOOD, TENN. – SIUE men's track senior Keith Meyer earned the Ohio Valley Conference Male Track Athlete of the Week for his outstanding performance at the Indiana Relays last week.

He recorded a pair of top two finishes in the 3K and 5K, breaking SIUE's school records for both events in the process.

Meyer won the 3K Saturday with a school record time of 8 minutes, 23.40 seconds and placed second in the 5K Friday with a school record of 14:24.73 seconds. He currently holds the best 5K time in the OVC.

He shares the weekly honor Eastern Kentucky's Jamaine Coleman.

"Keith's growth as an athlete has been inspiring," said Assistant Coach Joseph Pacione. "He is a testament to hard work paying off, and it paid off this weekend with two school records that were 27 years old. When he sets his mind to something, it is difficult for anything to stand in his way."

The Cougars, with Meyer in tow, are set to continue their indoor season at the SIU Don DeNoon Invitational on Feb. 3 in Carbondale, Illinois.
