Christopher Newport junior Sam Murch was awarded as the CAC Track Athlete of the Week after establishing a new school record and posting the top time in the CAC this season in the 3,000 meters at the Vince Brown Invitational on Saturday at the Freeman Center. Murch won the event in 8:33.49, which shaved nearly three seconds off the previous CNU standard of 8:36.10 that was established by David Woodson in 2008. His clocking is also five seconds faster than the second-best mark in the CAC this year and ranks first in the South / Southeast Region and 20th in the NCAA.
