MADISON (WKOW) -

Badgers senior Malachy Schrobilgen has been named the Big Ten Track Athlete of the Championship after scoring 18 points for Wisconsin at the 2017 Big Ten Outdoor Championships.

Schrobilgen took home a victory in the 10,000 meters and a second-place finish in the 5,000 meters.

“This is a well-deserved honor for Malachy,” UW Director of Track and Field and Cross Country Mick Byrne said in a statement. “There were many outstanding performances this past weekend at our conference meet. This award speaks volumes for the understanding and respect our coaches have for the work Malachy has done for this program, not just this past weekend, but during his entire Badger career.”

The Illinois native is the first Badger to win this award since Demi Omole in 2007. Teammate Morgan McDonald was the 2017 Big Ten Track Athlete of the Indoor Championships.
