Beloit's Pat Nicolas (football) and Frances Knaggs (cross country) were named Midwest Conference Athletes of the Week for their performances Saturday.
Nicolas broke the Buccaneer record for tackles in a game in the team’s loss at Ripon College Saturday. The sophomore defensive back registered 27 tackles including 15 solo and 12 assisted. The total is the top mark in program history and ranks fourth in the Midwest Conference record book.
Knaggs led the Buc women to second-place at the Wisconsin Private College Championships Saturday in Green Lake, Wisconsin. The junior posted her best time of the season, 24:07.17, crossing the finish line in second place. That time improves Knaggs' 12th-ranked time in the MWC standings this season.
The Buccaneer football team will host the University of Chicago this Saturday at Strong Stadium at 1 p.m. while the cross country team has a week off to prepare for the Midwest Conference Championships set for Saturday, October 27 in North Chicago.
