Kithuka was also named the national Athlete of the Week on Monday by the U.S. Track and Field and Cross Country Coaches Association.

Kithuka has been the Big 12 Runner of the Week twice this season, earning the league’s first honor of the year.

Kithuka is unbeaten during his time as a Red Raider.
