SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (September 18, 2018) – The American Collegiate Athletic Association (ACAA) announced Abshir Yerow (Syracuse, NY / Nottingham) as its Men's Cross Country Athlete of the Week. This is Yerow's first career ACAA weekly honor, and SUNY Delhi men's cross country's second straight after Kobie Lane picked up last week's award.
Yerow earned the weekly conference nod after placing fifth on Saturday to lead the Broncos to a second-place finish at the SUNY Oneonta Airfield Invitational. The transfer from Onondaga C.C. crossed the line at 19:40.6 in the six-kilometer race, ranking him sixth among Delhi's all-time list on the SUNY Oneonta course.
Yerow and the Broncos have a weekend off in preparation for the Geneseo Mike Woods Invitational on Saturday, Sept. 29.
