WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (Purdue Sports) — Purdue men's cross country senior Jaret Carpenter was selected as the 2019 Big Ten Men's Cross Country Athlete of the Year, as voted by Big Ten coaches. With the award, Carpenter becomes just the second Boilermaker to be chosen for the distinct honor, following Matt McClintock's selection in 2015.

Capping off his senior season by finishing 10th at the NCAA Championships with a time of 30:58.7, Carpenter posted the best finish by a Boilermaker at the NCAA meet since 1949. Additionally, Carpenter paced Purdue to its best team finish (11th) at nationals since 1950 and the best since the meet expanded from nine schools to its current 31-team field.

Carpenter joined teammate Curt Eckstein in collecting All-America honors last weekend, joining McClintock as the only runners to earn that status since 1987. The 2019 All-Americans are just the ninth and tenth Boilermakers to earn the honor in program history.

Earlier this month, Carpenter garnered All-Big Ten and All-Great Lakes Regional citations, the latter after his fifth-place finish led Purdue to its first-ever NCAA Great Lakes Regional title. This year marked Carpenter's third all-conference and all-regional awards, highlighted by last year's selection as the USTFCCCA Great Lakes Region Athlete of the Year after he won the regional title.
