James Ngandu keeps adding to his lengthy list of accolades.
For the second consecutive year, Ngandu was named Midwest Region Cross Country Athlete of the Year, as the USTFCCCA announced its regional award winners.
Ngandu, a senior from Nakuru, Kenya, was undefeated on the season, winning the GLIAC Championship and the Midwest Region title. He won both races by more than 10 seconds each.
Ngandu is a two-time region and three-time GLIAC champion in cross country. He has been named GLIAC Athlete of the Year twice and also finished 3rd at NCAA Nationals last year, earning All-American honors.
Ngandu will now compete at the NCAA National Championships on Nov. 18 in Evansville, Indiana.
