The Syracuse men placed third at the meet.Going back to last season, Knight has won three-straight meets and six of the last seven. This is the second time he has won the Nuttycombe Wisconsin Invitational, becoming one of only two runners to win the event multiple times.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textThis is the fourth time Knight has been named national athlete of the week during his tenure at Syracuse, with his most recent title occurring last track season.
