Swan endures snow en route to Mariner men's athlete of the week honors
Senior Logan Swan, who paced all U.S. Merchant Marine runners at the Landmark Conference men's cross country championships on Saturday, was named Mariners men's athlete of the week.
Swan was honored for the week ending on Sunday, Oct. 30.
Swan ran the course in Bethlehem, Pa. on Saturday in 26:36.90, which was good for a 19th-place finish on a course in which the competitors were forced to battle four inches of slushy snow, the wind and freezing temperatures.
The course originally was supposed to be eight kilometers, but due to a fallen tree, the course was forced to be shortened to 7.4K.
The Mariners return to action at Mt. Greylock in Williamstown, Mass. on Saturday for the ECAC Championships hosted by Williams College.
Logan Swan led all Mariners runners with a 19th-place finish at the Landmark Championships last weekend.
