January 31, 2018--Mount St. Mary's senior Brenden Chavis has been named the Northeast Conference Field Athlete of the Week. Chavis won the weight throw at the George Mason Patriot Games this past Saturday.
Chavis lengthened his lead in the weight throw with a toss of 17.13m (56' 2.5") to take home the gold medal at George Mason. His mark is an automatic qualifier for the IC4A Championships, and he owns nearly a meter lead over Wagner's Lutfi Pocesta on the NEC leaderboard in the weight throw.
The Mountaineers return to action at the Akron Invitational this weekend.
