Janecke earns weekly GLIAC honor

Grand Valley State University junior Jessica Janecke has been named the first GLIAC Outdoor Track Athlete of the Week for the 2014 season.

Janecke recorded the best 10,000 meter time in the NCAA Division II this year at the Raleigh Relays in North Carolina. She finished fourth (first among D-II runners) in the “A” section with a time of 35:04.23.

The Scales Mound, Ill., product cleared the top D-II time by more than 16 seconds.

GVSU will return to action this weekend in Janecke’s home state at the Eastern Illinois Invitational in Charleston.
