MILWAUKEE, Wis. (naccsports.org) --- Benedictine University senior Emma Roberts (Sandwich, Ill.) and Milwaukee School of Engineering senior Blake Bostwick (Whitefish Bay, Wis.) have been named the Northern Athletics Collegiate Conference (NACC) Cross Country Student-Athletes of the Week for the week of Oct. 28-Nov. 3, 2019, as selected by the league's sports information directors.
This is the final set of NACC weekly honors for the 2019 cross country season.
NACC Women's Cross Country Student-Athlete of the Week
Emma Roberts, Benedictine University
Roberts became the first individual in NACC women's cross country championship history to win three conference championships with a third-straight crown Saturday. She led wire-to-wire in less-than-ideal conditions, covering the 6-kilometer course at Greenfield Park in West Allis, Wisconsin, in 24:34.58 while besting the field by nearly a full minute.
This is Roberts' fourth NACC weekly honor this season.
NACC Men's Cross Country Student-Athlete of the Week
Blake Bostwick, Milwaukee School of Engineering
Bostwick held off Concordia Chicago's Thomas McNamara down the stretch to capture the men's individual crown Saturday at the 2019 NACC Cross Country Championships at Greenfield Park in West Allis, Wisconsin. Bostwick stopped the clock in 27:34.66, edging McNamara by just under one second (27:35.62). He led a contingent of six MSOE all-conference runners as the Raiders totaled 38 points, nearly half the total of 75 posted by runner-up Aurora.
