EMU sophomore Isaac Alderfer (Broadway, Va./Broadway) has earned his first-ever ODAC Runner of the Week award.
Alderfer was the top ODAC finisher at Saturday's Hornet Harrier hosted by Shenandoah University at Kernstown Battlefield, site of the 2018 ODAC Championships. He finished ninth overall out of 193 runners with a time of 19:52.9 on the six-kilometer course. That set a new personal-best at 6k by 18 seconds. Alderfer's efforts helped Eastern Mennonite to seventh (194 points) in the team table of 20 squads.
Alderfer is the second Royal to win a weekly award from the Old Dominion Athletic Conference this fall, joining Abigail Shelly from the women's team.
