MACON, Ga. – Lipscomb track and field athlete Tucker Peabody has been named the Atlantic Sun Conference Track Athlete of the Week after setting two school records at the Sun Angel Classic last weekend in Tempe, Ariz.
Peabody, a native of Memphis, Tenn., crossed the finish line in an Atlantic Sun-best 21.13 seconds in the 200-meter dash. Peabody finished fifth overall but was the second collegiate runner to cross the finish line in the premiere event.
Peabody also finished in third place in the 100-meter dash in 10.5 seconds. That time ranks him second in the A-Sun this season.
The Bisons are back in action on Saturday at the Boston Moon Classic in Nashville and at the Ole Miss Invite in Oxford, Miss.
