Christopher Newport senior Brendon Burrows claimed CAC Field Athlete of the Week honors after winning two events and setting a school record at the Blue & Silver Challenge on Saturday. Headlining his efforts, he won the discus with a 50.81-meter toss. That established a new benchmark at CNU, breaking the previous standard of 49.74 meters set by teammate Legend Hayes in 2017. It also ranks third in the NCAA this year and first in both the CAC and South / Southeast Region. Burrows also claimed the title in the shot put with a 15.39-meter toss. That ranks third in school history and 13th in the NCAA this year.
