Freiburger Named ARC’s Male Athlete of the Week

A Western Dubuque grad has once again been named the American Rivers Conference’s Male Athlete of the Week and Runner of the Week.

Joe Freiburger of Holy Cross is a senior at Wartburg in the Men’s Cross Country program. For the fourth consecutive race, Freiburger picked up the victory – this time at the Wartburg Triangular against 71 other runners from Buena Vista and Loras. His time helped guide the Knights to another 1st place team finish with 18 points. He also shattered his own Wartburg course record with a time of 24:32, a time that sits third best all-time in Wartburg men’s cross country history.

This is Freiburger’s eighth time being named Runner of the Week for the American Rivers Conference.

Clayton Ridge grad Kassie Rosenbum of Guttenberg, a junior at Loras, was named the conference’s Female Athlete of the Week and Runner of the Week for her performance in Women’s Cross Country.
