(WNFL)- Wisconsin senior Reed Connor has been named the Big Ten Conference men's indoor track athlete-of-the-week. Connor beat out 11 All-Americans to win the five-thousand meters at last weekend's Iowa State Classic. He edged out Patrick Tiernan of Villanova in a close finish. Connor topped his personal best time by 13 seconds -- just 31-hundredths-of-a-second ahead of Tiernan with a winning time of 13-minutes, 37-point-42 seconds. It's the fourth-best performance in U-W history, and it's fourth in the world this year.
