For the first time in his collegiate career, Calvin junior Caleb Ferguson has been named the MIAA Men's Outdoor Track Athlete of the Week.
A native of Naperville, Illinois, Ferguson recorded a season-best time of 9:16.11 in the 3,000 meter steeplechase Saturday night at the Bucknell Bison Classic. A graduate of Neuqua Valley High School, Ferguson moved up to 10th on the NCAA III performance list with his time.
Ferguson has become a stalwart for Calvin in the steeplechase event. A two-time national qualifier in the steeplechase, Ferguson was an All-American in the steeplechase last May, placing seventh in the race at the NCAA III Outdoor Track and Field Championships.
Ferguson and his Calvin teammates are set to return to action this coming weekend at the Al Owens Classic hosted by Grand Valley State University.
