Thanks to a season-best leap at the Southern Illinois Invite, senior Gemikal Prude has been named the Atlantic Sun Men’s Indoor Field Athlete of the Week.
With a jump of 7' 1 3/4" (2.18m), Prude took home first place in the high jump at the SIU Invite. The win was his second in only three competitions this year.
His mark currently ranks first in the A-Sun and 12th in the nation, setting him up for a return to the NCAA Indoor National Championships.
This is the fourth time Prude as won an A-Sun Indoor Field Athlete of the Week award, and the first time he has won it this season.
The Bisons will return to action on Feb. 13 with athletes heading to both the Hoosier Hills Invite and the Husky Classic.
