Moyock, N.C. | Currituck County 

Christopher Newport senior Jeff Dover was named the CAC Track Athlete of the Week for the third week in a row after racing to a school record in the 5000 meters at the Bucknell Bison Outdoor Classic on Saturday. One week after breaking CNU's 1500 record, he set a new mark in the 5000 after crossing in 14:21.61. That shaved nearly 14 seconds off his previous school record of 14:35.06. It also marked the second-fastest clocking in the nation this year and was just .02 seconds off of the all-time CAC record.
