Devries named AstroTurf SAC Field Athlete of the Week

ROCK HILL, S.C. --- Tusculum University's Guillaume Devries has been named the AstroTurf South Atlantic Conference Men's Field Athlete of the Week.  Devries earns this honor for a second time in the past three weeks.

Devries (Valenciennes, France) won the high jump at the Liberty Kickoff Invitational with a mark of 2.10 meters (6 feet, 10 3/4 inches). He entered at a height of 1.95 meters which he cleared on his first attempt. After making 2.00 meters on his second try, Devries was successful on his first attempt at 2.05 meters. Devries then cleared the bar at 2.10 meters on his second attempt, which would stand as the winning jump after Isaiah Kyle of Wingate needed three attempts to make the height.

The victory was his second in three meets this season.  He won previously at the ETSU Invitational earlier this month.

The Pioneers will compete at this weekend's ETSU Buccaneer Invitational in Johnson City.
