Field Athlete of the Week

Wesley Shrieves | Christopher Newport | Jr. 

Painter, Va. Broadwater Academy   

Christopher Newport junior Wesley Shrieves was named the CAC Field Athlete of the Week for the second straight week after breaking his one-week-old CAC mark in the indoor long jump at the Captains Invitational on Saturday. He tacked nearly seven inches onto his old record after winning the event with a 7.25-meter effort. That performance not only broke his old conference record of 7.08 meters, but it also ranks third in the nation this year. Along with his long jump, Shrieves placed second in the triple jump (13.15 meters), third in the high jump (1.90 meters), and fourth in the 60 (7.05). He was the top Division III finisher in all three of those disciplines.
