After a brief break, we’re back to recognizing our top athletes each week with our HOKA Athlete of the Week series. As our male recipient. we’d like to congratulate St. John’s Prep’s Nathan Lopez for this week’s honor. In his first competitive race since last month’s New Balance Nationals, Lopez manufactured our state’s fastest mile so far this season by winning the event at our inaugural BSR Mid Distance Classic with a time of 4 minutes, 16.21 seconds. The University of Michigan commit won the race by more than four seconds.
