Senior track star Emory Nash of Fort Worth, TX, was selected as the DU Athlete of the Week for the dates of October 28-Nov. 3.

In Saturday's 26th annual UNCF Walk, Nash finished in first place with a time of 13:15.

"I had a goal of running a 15:30 for a three mile race to let me know what kind of shape I was in for the upcoming track season," said Nash.  "I have plans to win the 800 Meter national title."

Nash finished 2nd in the 800 Meter Run at the 2013 GCAC Track and Field Championships, but clearly felt he could have won first place.

"That day we each competed in a ton of extra races on top of our usual races just so our team would have a chance to get more points and win first overall," said Nash.

Nash and the Bleu Devils open up track season at the Samford Invitational in Birmingham on Feb 7-9.
