YORK, Pa. – The Capital Athletic Conference released its weekly awards and three Salisbury University student-athletes collected track & field honors. Senior Becca Stinner was named the Women's Track Athlete of the Week while junior Chelsea Tavik claimed Field Athlete of the Week honors. Senior Jay Drenner broke a school record which had stood since 1994 to claim the Men's Field Athlete of the Week award.
Stinner claimed the 3,000-meter steeplechase with a time of 11:27.76 at the Towson University Invitational, and was the top non-Division I finisher in the 800-meter run with a time of 2:20.69.
Tavik was the top Division III competitor in the shot put (45' 9.75"), hammer throw (143' 4"), javelin (115') and discus (102' 7"). Tavik's best effort in the shot put earned her a third-place finish and her hammer throw was good for fifth.
Drenner put up a school-best distance of 168' 10" in the hammer throw, which earned him a third-place finish. The mark was also the best in school history, a record that had stood since Dan Quinn's 168' 8" heave in 1994.
The award was Drenner's fourth this year while Tavik has been honored three times and Stinner has picked up the accolade for the first time this season.
The Sea Gulls will be back in action this Saturday, April 7 at the Goucher Invitational.
