Lemke Earns All-Conference Honorable Mention

Stefan Lemke of Morris earned All-Conference Honorable Mention status at the Minnesota Intercollegiate Athletic Conference Cross Country Championships on Saturday, November 2.

Lemke, a senior at St. Olaf University, placed 19th in the men's division with a time of 26:14.8. The top 15 finishers make the All-Conference team.

The St. Olaf College men's cross country were dominant Saturday en route to their second-straight Minnesota Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (MIAC) championship. Thursday, the Oles experienced another round of deja vu by claiming the conference's top individual honors as the MIAC announced its 2013 Men's Cross Country Awards.

Both Winthesier and his team were incredibly impressive at Saturday's championship race at Como Park Golf Course in St. Paul, Minn. The St. Olaf junior completed the 8k course in 24:48.9, defeating teammate Jake Brown by 16 seconds and earning his second-straight MIAC individual title. Wintheiser became just the ninth MIAC men's runner to win back-to-back titles and 11th to win the race more than once. Next season, he'll have a chance to become just the second runner ever to win the MIAC individual title in three-straight seasons, and the third to claim three titles during his career.

Wintheiser's 2013 time was almost exactly 20 seconds faster than his winning time in 2012 (25:08.1). Now, the Ole junior has finished in the top six and earned All-MIAC honors in each of his three collegiate seasons. Wintheiser adds his 2013 MIAC Athlete-of-the-Year award to another outstanding fall, which included the MIAC Men's Cross Country Athlete-of-the-Week honor on Sept. 24.

Lundin - now in his sixth season at St. Olaf - guided the Oles to their second MIAC Championship in a row, and their sixth men's cross country title overall. This is Lundin's second-straight MIAC Men's Cross Country Coach-of-the-Year honor, and his third overall after also winning in 2008. He was also named the MIAC Men's Indoor Track and Field Coach-of-the-Year in March, in addition to four Big Ten Coach-of-the-Year awards during his tenure at the University of Minnesota.

Lundin's squad was downright dominant in its title defense Saturday. The Oles won with a score of 20, defeating runnier-up Carleton by 61 points. St. Olaf had the first three individual finishers as well as No. 6, No. 8 and No. 10 to take up six spots in the top 10. Oles also finished 16th and 21st to give Lundin six All-MIAC selections and two All-MIAC Honorable Mention picks.

In addition to the top individual honors, the MIAC Men's Cross Country All-Conference and All-Conference Honorable mention squads were also recognized. The top 15 finishers in Saturday's MIAC Championship race received All-Conference honors, while finishers 16-25 received Honorable Mention.

As part of a conference-wide sportsmanship initiative, the MIAC announced the eighth annual All-MIAC Sportsmanship team for Men's Cross Country. Members of the All-MIAC Sportsmanship team are selected by their coaches and teammates as individuals who demonstrate ideals of positive sportsmanship both on and off the field of competition.
