UNI Sophomore sprinter Brandon Carnes has been named the Missouri Valley Conference Male Track Athlete of the Week.  This is Carnes' second Athlete of the Week honor and UNI's third of the outdoor season. Carnes' currently leads the MVC in both the 100 and 200 meter dashes. 


Carnes posted a blazing time in the 100 meter dash at the Musco Twilight, coming away with a new personal-best of 10.24. It is the second fastest time in school history and the 13th fastest in the NCAA West Region.


His success continued into the 200 meters at the meet, scoring a time of 20.70. The time would have shattered the school record, but due to the 2.5 wind aid, it didn't count toward the record. The sophomore is currently 11th in the NCAA West Region in the event after his career-best mark.
