Calvin College senior Ethan Valentine has been named the MIAA's Indoor Track and Field Runner of the Week.
A native of Mason, Ohio, Valentine clocked a season-best time of 48.80 in the 400 meters last Friday at the Grand Valley State Big Meet. A graduate of William Mason High School, Valentine was competing in a field of Division I and Division II athletes Friday. His time was good for seventh place in the event.
The time in the 400 meters currently ranks 14th on the NCAA III Indoor Track and Field performance list.
"Ethan had a good race on Friday. It was good to see him run under 49 seconds again," said Calvin head track and field coach Bret Otte. "We are looking forward to seeing what he can do this upcoming weekend."
Valentine and the rest of his teammates will compete at the Grand Valley State Tune-Up Invitational Friday at 3 p.m.
