Junior track and field star David Zane was named the Midwest Conference Track Performer of the Week for this past week after several impressive races. Zane finished second in the 3000-meter steeplechase, placing behind only a Division I runner. His time of 10:10.36 is the third fastest in the conference this year. Zane also ran the 5000-meter race in 15:56.74 at the Benedictine Invitational the previous week, which was the first time a Lawrence runner has finished in under 16 minutes in the race in a decade. This was Zane’s first Conference Performer of the Week award. In women’s track and field, Madeline Steininger finished in the top six in two events to place the team at the Marquette Invitational, where they competed against a number of division one schools. The Vikings head to UW-Oshkosh this weekend for their invitational meet.
