AUSTINTOWN, Ohio -- Mount Union sophomore AJ Digby (Tontogany / Otsego) was named Ohio Athletic Conference Men's Track Athlete of the Week.

Digby won the 400 meters with the nation's fifth-best time at 48.39 at the John Homon Open this past Saturday at Mount Union Stadium.

He also finished fourth in the 200 meters with a time of 22.71.

Digby is the reigning 400 meter champ outdoors in the OAC, a national qualifier for the 400 meters indoors earlier this year and ran the anchor leg on the Purple Raiders 4x400 meter relay team that won the national title both last year's NCAA Outdoor Championships and this year's NCAA Indoor Championships.
