Bradley Makuvire’s victory at the LSU Invitational 6K race Friday earned him Southland Conference Cross Country Male Athlete of the Week for Southeastern Louisiana University, the league office announced Tuesday.

Makuvire, a sophomore, finished the race in 18:45.33 which was 24 seconds ahead of second place finisher Davis Bove of LSU (19:09.60). The Zvishavane, Zimbabwe native has two top 10 finishes to his credit in just three races at SLU.

A 2020 second team All-Southland selection, Makuvire also finished 10th in the Southland Conference Championship back on Feb. 21.

“Bradley has been training extremely hard through all of the adversity we have faced this semester,” said SLU cross country head coach Corey Mistretta. “And he is driven to accomplish some big goals for his season.”

Makuvire and the Lions will continue their preparations for the 2021 Southland Conference Championships Friday, Oct. 29 in Corpus Christi, Texas.
