JARROD STEVENS NAMED WAC MEN?S OUTDOOR TRACK AND FIELD ATHLETE OF THE WEEK

            BOISE, Idaho – Recording the second best throw for the men’s hammer in Boise State University history, Jarrod Stevens has been named the Western Athletic Conference Men’s Outdoor Track and Field Athlete of the Week.

            A junior from Adelaida, Australia, Stevens earned the honor when he won the event at the BYU Cougar Invitational last Friday (March 30) with a throw of 217-3 (66.23m).  His throw was also a NCAA regional qualifying mark and an improvement of over 10 feet on his previous best throw of 206-10 (63.04m) set on March 24 in Sacramento.

            Stevens is ranked No. 4 in the country on the lastest NCAA performance and he is No. 1 in the WAC.

            Stevens’ award marks the second straight week a Bronco student-athlete has won the track and field honor from the WAC.  Last week Erik Whitsitt won the men’s award and Annika Hjelm was named the women’s winner.

            The Bronco track and field teams are in action this Saturday (April 7) on the Ed Jacoby Track at Bronco Stadium when it plays host to Idaho State University in a dual scoring meet.  Field events get started on Saturday with the women’s hammer at 11:00 a.m., with running events starting at 2:30 p.m. with the women’s 4x100-meter relay.
