Former Bobcat Named American Rivers Conference Male Athlete of the Week

A Western Dubuque grad has been named one of the American Rivers Conference Athletes of the Week.

Joe Freiburger, a native of Holy Cross, is currently a senior at Wartburg who competes in Men’s Cross Country. Freiburger was named the Male Athlete of the Week after finding himself on top of the leaderboard for the third consecutive race. His time this week at the Wartburg Triangular set a course record and set a personal best time of 24 minutes 42.7 seconds – and was seven seconds ahead of the second place finisher.

Freiburger has been named Runner of the Week seven times over the past two years. He was the 2019 ARC Champion and finished 22nd at last year’s NCAA Championships.
