APPLETON, Wis. — Lawrence University cross country standout Jamie Brisbois has been named the Midwest Conference Performer of the Week.

Brisbois (Falcon Heights, Minn./Roseville) took the honor after a stellar performance at the UW-Oshkosh Brooks Invitational this past Saturday. Brisbois covered the 8,000-meter course at Lake Breeze Golf Club in 26:22.25, which was a personal record for the senior. Brisbois placed 102nd in a field of 566 runners.

Brisbois, who ran to all-conference honors in 2011, posted the sixth-fastest time in the Midwest Conference this season. Led by Brisbois, Lawrence took 23rd place against an elite field at the massive 37-team meet.

Lawrence returns to action on Nov. 2 when it travels to Grinnell College for the Midwest Conference Championships.
