Menner chooses USI to continue running career
EVANSVILLE, Ind.—The University of Southern Indiana men's cross country/track and field team announced the signing of Andrew Menner (Greenwood, Indiana) to a national letter of intent. Menner is the first person to sign with Head Coach Mike Hillyard's Screaming Eagles during the early signing period.
Menner is a senior at Center Grove High School where he has earned seven varsity letters in cross country and track. He has posted a personal-best in the 5k of 15 minutes, 59 seconds and was the Most Valuable Runner on CGHS's cross country team this past fall.
On the track, Menner was a member of CGHS's state-qualifying 4x800-meter relay team this past spring. His personal-best in the 800 meters is one minute, 57 seconds, while his best 1,600-meter time is four minutes, 28 seconds. He ran the 3,200 meters as a sophomore in a personal-best nine minutes, 56 seconds.
Menner, who is CGHS's nominee for the Wendy's High School Heisman Award, is an Academic All-State performer in cross country as well as an Academic All-Conference selection in cross country and track.
"Andrew is the type of student-athlete who will continue to improve at the next level," Hillyard said. "He is talented, disciplined, intelligent, and very competitive. Andrew is excited to be a part of our program and we are equally enthusiastic about his decision to compete for the Screaming Eagles."
