The U.S. Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association (USTFCCCA) named UNI’s Brandon Carnes the Midwest Region Track Athlete of the Year.
 
Carnes will compete in the 100-meter dash at the 2017 NCAA Division I Outdoor Track and Field Championships set for June 7-10 in Eugene, Oregon.
 
Carnes, a senior from Bradenton, Florida, is ranked fifth nationally in the 100 meters with a time of 9.97. He is also ranked 12th nationally in the 200 meters with a time of 20.25. Carnes will only contest the 100 at NCAAs.
