Stephen F. Austin senior thrower Jon Arthur has been named Southland Conference Male Field Athlete of the Week announced league officials Wednesday afternoon. It is the second consecutive week that Arthur has received the honor.
Arthur followed a similar path to the honor this week as he did last week. He competed in three events at the Victor Lopez Classic in Houston recording three top-five finishes, two individual titles and one school record.
Arthur's two victories once again came in the shot put and the hammer throw, but in a reversal from last week the school record was set in the hammer. He recorded a throw of 198-1 in the hammer, and 59-1.25 in the shot put. He just missed a third individual title with a second-place finish in the discus (153-5).
The SFA track and field teams return to action Thursday when they travel to Austin, Texas for the Texas Relays.
