AUSTINTOWN, Ohio -- Mount Union freshman Mason Plant (Shreve/Triway) has been named Ohio Athletic Conference Men's Track Athlete of the Week.

Plant matched his season-best time in winning the 60 meter hurdles with a time of 8.21. That time is also the 12th best time in NCAA Division III this season.

Plant has won the event in three different indoor meets this winter.

The Purple Raiders are ranked No. 11 as a team in NCAA Division III and run this week at the OAC Championships at Baldwin Wallace in Berea. Mount Union is attempting to win its fifth straight and record 36th overall conference title in indoor track and field.
