Northwest Missouri State sophomore Omar Austin has been named the MIAA track athlete of the week.
Austin won the 400m dash at the Pitt State Invitational with a time of 46.87s, which is the fastest time in the country so far and an automatic qualifying time for the National Championship meet. Austin also placed fifth in the 60m dash with a provisional qualifying time of 6.79s.
Austin and the rest of Bearcats will be back in action when they host the Bearcat Open this weekend in Hughes Fieldhouse.
