Central College senior Kyle Wood is the Iowa Conference Male Athlete of the Week. Wood received track events MVP honors at the indoor league championships last Saturday. He won the same honor at the outdoor conference meet last spring. There, he captured his second straight 400-meter dash title, took runner-up honors in the 200 meters, led off the winning 4×200 relay and anchored the winning 4×400 relay. The 4×200 mark broke the school record by almost a full second and his 200-meter time tied the record.

Wood helped the Dutch to a second-place finish in the team standings with 182 points. Wartburg College won the title with 210.5 points. It’s the second time this year Wood has been recognized as the track events performer of the week and the third in his career.
