Kansas Wesleyan’s Tabetha Deines (JR/Salina, Kan.) and Jacob Lovell (SR/Junction City, Kan.) were selected as the KCAC Women’s and Men’s Indoor Track and Field Runners of the Week for their efforts in the season-opening Friends / Shocker Track Club First Chance Meet at Wichita State’s Heskett Center.

The duo’s selection comes from a pool of nominees, selected by conference sports information directors.

Deines picked up a pair of victories in her two races at the event. She won the 1000m by 14 seconds, setting a new KWU Indoor school record with a time of 3:00.74. The time qualified Deines for the NAIA National Championships. Deines also won the mile run, finishing with a time of 5:28.19.
