Two players earn national praise
Susquehanna placed two players on the D3football.com National Team of the Week for games played from Oct. 11 through 17.
Senior running back Dave Paveletz and junior defensive back Braden Klingler are the honorees.
Paveletz rushed 36 times for a game- and season-high 188 yards and three touchdowns to help Susquehanna top Rensselaer, 35-30, in a Liberty League game on Oct. 17.
He broke Susquehanna's all-time rushing touchdown mark in that game with the 46th of his career. He also caught a 14-yard pass. The Liberty League honored him with a football Offensive Player of the Week award for the third time this season on Oct. 19.
Klingler made a team-high eight tackles -- including a team-high seven solo stops -- intercepted a pass in the end zone and broke up two other passes in the Rensselaer game.
He tied for the game-high with two tackles for a loss and 13 total yards lost on those two tackles.
Susquehanna has earned an impressive four National Team of the Week awards this year.
Runners earn accolade
The Landmark Conference honored senior Paul Thistle and sophomore Casey Hess with its cross-country Performer of the Week awards on Oct. 19.
Thistle finished second out of 316 runners in the Gettysburg Invitational on Oct. 17, helping Susquehanna to a second-place team finish out of 25 schools.
Susquehanna trailed only NCAA Division II and nationally ranked No. 14 Shippensburg in the standings.
Thistle posted a time of 26 minutes, 25.98 seconds on the drenched and sloppy 8,000-meter course. This is his second Landmark Performer of the Week award this season.
Hess finished third out of 292 runners in the women's section of the same event, helping the Crusaders to a sixth-place team finish out of 28 multiple-level schools.
She posted a time of 23:58.12 on the 6,000-meter course. She has earned an impressive four Landmark Performer of the Week awards this season.
