Noah Kiprono of Rocky Mountain College has been chosen as the Frontier Conference men's outdoor track athlete of the week.

Kiprono, a senior from Nairobi, Kenya, finished first earlier this week at the Battlin' Bear Half Marathon. His winning time of 1:09.47 qualified him for the marathon at this spring's NAIA national championships.

This will be his fourth time running the marathon at nationals. He finished third last year and was an NAIA All-American.

Kiprono will be the top returnee from last year's marathon. His time of 1:09.47 ties him for the No. 3 spot in the country so far this season.
