FREDERICKSBURG, Va. – The Capital Athletic Conference released weekly track & field honors on Tuesday afternoon and Salisbury University claimed three of the four accolades as Duncan Ferrin, Katherine Sigman, and Kyleigh Dumas each earned conference recognition.
Ferrin was named the men's Field Athlete of the Week for his performance this past weekend at Coastal Carolina University in the Alan Connie Shamrock Invitational. Ferrin posted a new personal record in the hammer throw while also capturing a third-place finish, recording a throw of 180' 5.50".
Sigman, who was named the Track Athlete of the Week, also turned in a solid weekend at the Alan Connie Shamrock Invitational for the Sea Gulls. Sigman added a new record to the Salisbury track & field women's record books as she posted the first mile time in program history. In what will be a new event at the NCAA Division I level Sigman completed the race in a time 5:20.96 to post Salisbury's first time in the event. When converted to a 1,500-meter time, Sigman's mark of 4:57.20 ranks atop the CAC and 38th nationally so far this outdoor season.
Dumas, who was named the Field Athlete of the Week, also found her way into the Salisbury women's track & field record books as she posted a new height in the pole vault. Dumas cleared the bar at a height of 11' 5.75", which breaks the previous record of 11' 2.50" set by Sarah Taylor in 2015. Her mark ranks her first in the CAC and ties for third in Division III this outdoor season.
Salisbury returns to action on Saturday, March 31 when it travels to Christopher Newport University to compete in the Blue and Silver Challenge. The meet is scheduled to start at 9 a.m.
