Peets Receives A-10 Rookie of the Week Accolades For Second Straight Week

Full A-10 release

NEWPORT NEWS, Va. – For the second consecutive week St. Bonaventure freshman Clay Peets has earned Atlantic 10 Rookie of the Week honors, conference officials announced Tuesday.

The Akron, Ohio native is now 2-for-2 both in taking weekly conference accolades as well as running a top-five program time.

Peets again wrote his name into the program record books this past Saturday as he posted the fifth-fastest individual 8K time in program history as he crossed the finish line in 26:16 at the Edinboro Invitational. He finished eighth overall out of 71 competitors in the race, powering St. Bonaventure to a second-place finish in the six-team field.

He entered the race as the reigning A-10 Rookie of the Week after setting the second-fastest 5K time, and best in an official event, in Bona's history when he ran 15:42.79 at the Little Three Championship.

Peets is the first St. Bonaventure runner to capture multiple A-10 Rookie of the Week honors since Logan Caruso did so in 2018. He is the first Bonnies men's runner to ever win the award in back-to-back weeks.

St. Bonaventure has a week off before returning to competition Sept. 25 at the Anderson Invitational in Rochester.
