GNAC lauds Kangogo

UAA sophomore Isaac Kangogo's swift 1,500-meter race last week in California earned him athlete-of-the-week honors in the Great Northwest Athletic Conference.

Kangogo ran a personal-best 3 minutes, 50.59 seconds at the Occidental Invitational, the 10th-fastest time in conference history. The perfomance provisionally qualifies him for the NCAA Division II track and field championships.

Kangogo, whose brother Alfred won last month's Alaska Heart Run, is part of a strong UAA team headed to Monmouth, Ore., for this week's GNAC championships.
