FHSU Sports Information

KANSAS CITY, Mo. – For the first time this outdoor season, Fort Hays State track and field’s Brett Meyer has been named the MIAA Co-Track Athlete of the Week. The award was announced Tuesday (April 8) from the conference office.

At the Colorado Invitational in Boulder over the past weekend, Meyer captured his first NCAA automatic qualification of the season. With a fifth place finish in the 1,500-meters, Meyer clocked a time of 3:49.65. However, due to altitude modifications, his time was adjusted to 3:44.18, giving him the automatic mark. The time now sits Meyer at third on the NCAA DII national performance list.

During the indoor season, Meyer achieved the MIAA Track Athlete of the Week three-consecutive weeks.

Meyer will be back on the track next this weekend as the Tigers travel to MIAA foe in Nebraska-Kearney.
