Track & Field, Benjamin Jung

Rhyme and University Books & More are pleased to announce that Benjamin Jung (So. • Downers Grove, Ill.) of the track & field team has been chosen as the UW-Oshkosh Male Student-Athlete of the Week for the period of April 29 - May 5.

Jung won the 100-meter dash, finished second in the 200-meter dash and ran on a first-place 400-meter relay at the WIAC Outdoor Track & Field Championship (presented by Culver's) held May 3-4 in Platteville.

Jung defeated 21 other competitors in the 100-meter dash with his time of 10.662 seconds (10.67). Jung's time, the 20th-fastest in the NCAA Division III this season, edged the second-place effort (10.669) of UW-Whitewater's Dwayne Ford by seven thousandths of a second.

In the 200-meter dash, Jung crossed the finish line in a second-place time of 21.59 seconds. His sprint ranks 24th in the country this season. UW-Stevens Point's Calden Wojt won the event with a time of 21.30 seconds.

Jung also ran with Christian Lopez, Robert Ogbuli and Ryan Powers for a victory in the 400-meter relay. The group defeated seven other squads with its nation-leading time of 41.06 seconds.

UW-Oshkosh finished second in the team competition with 138 points. UW-La Crosse tallied 184 points to capture its 31st straight title and 55th overall. UW-Eau Claire immediately followed second-place UW-Oshkosh with 114 points while UW-Whitewater finished fourth with 104.5.

Each week throughout the 2018-19 school year, one male and one female UW-Oshkosh student-athlete are recognized for their accomplishments from the previous week. The award winners will be announced on the UW-Oshkosh athletics website every Monday afternoon.
