SPORTS SHORTS: South Hardin grad honored by GPAC

SIOUX CITY — Northwestern College senior Tim Rose has been named the Great Plains Athletic Conference’s Men’s Track Athlete of the Week, the league office announced Wednesday.

Rose, a South Hardin High School graduate, met the automatic NAIA qualifying mark in two events and won a pair of titles at the Drake Relays last weekend in Des Moines. Rose began the three-day meet with a win in the men’s unseeded 1,500-meter run in a time of 3 minutes, 50.49 seconds — the third-fastest time in NAIA this spring.

Rose then anchored the Red Raiders’ 4×800 relay team to fourth place, running the fastest split of 1:53 that met the auto mark and again ranked third in the country. Rose also ran the anchor leg of Northwestern’s distance medley relay, which won in 10:09.57 and by a six-second margin.
