ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – Josh Kerr took collegiate track and field by storm last season. He is starting 2018 where he left off and has already received a pair of weekly honors for his work. Kerr was named NCAA Division one Men’s National Athlete of the Week Tuesday.
He had a UNM and Mountain West record breaking run at the NYRR Millrose Games in New York over the weekend where he finished second in the elite Wannamaker Mile.
