MADISON (WKOW) -

 Wisconsin distance runner Joe Hardy has earned Big Ten Freshman of the Year honors following his victory in the 1500 meters at the Big Ten Outdoor Championships. Hardy is just the fourth Badger to win the award.

Hardy surprised the field with his victory at the Big Ten outdoor meet. He came into the weekend with just the eighth-fastest time in the league this season. However, he clocked the second-fastest time in the prelims before beating the defending champion for the 2015 title.
