Male Athlete of the Week - Eric Schott

Missouri Southern junior Eric Schott broke the MSSU 10k school record Thursday night as he  finished fifth in the 10k Olympic Development Elite race at the 56th Annual Mt. Sac Relays held in Hilmer Lodge Stadium on the campus of Mt. San Antonio College. He finished the race in a time of 29:39.10, beating the old record of 30:03.57 by 24 seconds. The previous mark was coincidently set by Brennan Benkert at the very same race in 2010. Schott was bested only by three Division I runners and the race winner who is a member of the Mexican National Team.
