BUFFALO WILD WING STUDENT-ATHLETE OF THE WEEK – Leonard Korir, men’s track and field
Senior Leonard Korir's first place finish in the 3,000-meter run led a quartet of Iona College men's track performers at 2012 BU Terrier Invitational hosted by Boston University.
Korir's time of 7:54.59 was his second fastest career time and third fastest in school history sitting behind Richard Kiplagat's 7:49.98 (2006) and his own mark of 7:51.40 set in the same meet last season. Korir topped Binghamton's Erik van Ingen by less than two seconds.
For his performances over the weekend, Korir was named the MAAC Indoor Track and Field Performer of the Week.
