NOTRE DAME, Ind. – Notre Dame standout Jeremy Rae has been named BIG EAST Men’s Track Athlete of the Week after finishing second in his section of the 1,500m run at the Stanford Invitational this past weekend, the league office announced on Tuesday.
Rae, who just won a National Championship with the distance medley relay team at the NCAA Indoor Championships in March, finished sixth overall in the race (3:41.34), but was the second fastest collegiate runner in the 30-runner field.
The time places Rae second in the East and fourth nationally in the event.
Rae and the rest of his Irish teammates compete again this Saturday in Louisville, Ky., at the Louisville Border Battle.
