Second consecutive season for Ian McVey

ONU Senior All-American Ian McVey (Stow/Munroe Falls) has been tabbed the All-Ohio Division III Men's Runner of the Year for the second consecutive season.

In 2018, McVey won his second straight All-Ohio Championship title with a 24:23.8 clocking at Silver Creek Metro Park, the second-fastest time in school history for an 8,000-meter course.

The senior standout would capture six individual crowns this season, including his second successive Ohio Athletic Conference Championship and Great Lakes Regional Championship crowns.

He also secured his second career All-America honor after ending fifth at the NCAA Championships in Winneconne, Wisc.

The Stow native received his first accolade in 2017 after becoming the first Ohio Northern runner to win the All-Ohio individual crown. Additionallly, he claimed individual titles at the OAC Championships and Great Lakes Regional Championships before earning All-American honors with a 10th-place finish at the NCAA Championships.

McVey concludes his career as a two-time All-American and All-Ohio Division III Men's Runner of the Year, a two-time OAC, Great Lakes Region, and All-Ohio individual champion, and a four-time All-Region and All-OAC honoree.
