Lawrence University cross country standout Sam Stevens has been named the Midwest Conference Performer of the Week for second consecutive week.

Stevens (Suamico, Wis./Bay Port) won the honor after his effort at the University of Minnesota’s Roy Griak Invitational. The senior finished 29th among the 272 competitors and was the top Midwest Conference finisher in the event. Stevens covered the 8,000 meters in 26:43.5.

Stevens also won the award in the final week of September after finishing second at the UW-Whitewater Invitational on Sept. 22.

This is the fourth time Stevens has been named the MWC Performer of the Week. Stevens, the defending individual conference champion, captured the award twice during the 2011 season.

Lawrence returns to action on Saturday when it competes at its own Gene Davis Invitational at Appleton’s Reid Golf Course.
