APPLETON, Wis. -- Lawrence University cross country star Josh Janusiak was named the Midwest Conference Performer of the Week after running the league's fastest time.

Janusiak (South Milwaukee, Wis./South Milwaukee), a junior, took second at the prestigious KollegeTown Invitational. Janusiak covered the 8,000-meter course at Lake Breeze Golf Course in Winneconne, Wis., in 25:38, which is the fastest time in the Midwest Conference by 12 seconds.

This is Janusiak's third Performer of the Week honor this season and the seventh of his career.

Led by Janusiak and teammate Joe Kortenhof (Portland, Ore./Lincoln), who finished 10th, the Vikings took 11th in the team standings.

Lawrence returns to action on Oct. 28 when they travel to Jacksonville, Ill., for the Midwest Conference Championships where Janusiak is the defending champion.
