STUDENT-ATHLETE OF THE WEEK Leonard Korir, Men's Indoor Track

Junior Leonard Korir qualified for his second NCAA Championship event this winter with a second place performance in the 5,000-meter run at the 2011 UW Husky Classic in Seattle, Washington. Korir's time of 13:40.62 was second to Stanford's Elliott Heath and ahead of Arizona's Stephen Sambu. Sambu was one of three runners to finish ahead of Korir at the 2010 NCAA Cross Country Championship.  The time was also the second fastest in school history, just .75 seconds behind Richark Kiplagat's school record time set in 2006.
