Sep. 21—KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Missouri Southern sophomore distance runner Ryan Riddle has been named the MIAA Men's Cross Country Athlete of the Week, announced by the league office on Tuesday.

The Webb City product took home the individual title at the Missouri Southern Stampede on Saturday. He helped the Lions to a second place finish in the team standings.
