GREENSBORO, N.C. – UNCG sophomore Paul Katam (Eldoret, Kenya/Sacho) was named the Southern Conference Men's Runner of the Week, the league office announced Wednesday. Katam is the third different UNCG cross country runner to earn weekly honors this year joining the ranks of Paul Chelimo and Abraham Kemboi.
Katam helped the Spartans place 28th in the Pre-Nationals event that included 15 teams ranked in the top 40 in the nation. The race was also run on the same course as the 2012 NCAA national championships later this season.
