Emporia State Sweeps MIAA Men’s Track & Field Student-Athlete of the Week Honors

Updated:

KANSAS CITY, Mo. – Emporia State's Josh Schuler and Josh Honeycutt have been named MIAA Men's Track & Field Student-Athletes of the Week for the week of April 4-10, as selected by a conference SID panel.

MIAA MEN'S TRACK ATHLETE OF THE WEEK
Josh Schuler, Sr., Emporia State
Schuler tied an ESU school record with an automatic qualifier of 10.29 in 100-meter finals. He tied Kenton Lonberger's record set in 2008 at the ESU Relays. It was the second-fastest time in Division II this spring. Schuler broke a 53-year-old ESU record with a provisional qualifier of 20.90 in the 200-meter finals. He had the third-fastest entry mark, and won the race by .42 seconds. Schuler broke Rex Ressler's mark of 20.92 set in 1958 at the CIC Championships in Pittsburg, Kan. It is the second-fastest time in Division II this spring and leads the MIAA. Schuler teamed with Derwin Hall, Ryan Dickson and Shjuan Richardson to win the 400-meter relay in a provisional-qualifying time of 40.79. That matches their mark from last week, is the second-fastest time in ESU history and ranks eighth in the nation this spring.

Others nominated: Jermaine Blake, LU; Bill Shell, SBU.

 

MIAA MEN'S FIELD ATHLETE OF THE WEEK
Josh Honeycutt, Sr. Emporia State
Honeycutt was the top collegiate finisher and second overall with a slightly wind-aided (4.1 and 4.0 is allowable limit) mark of 52-08.75 feet (16.07 meters) in the triple jump. That would be an automatic mark and would rank second in Division II. Honeycutt has a best non-wind mark of 51-00.75 feet (15.56 meters) that is a provisional qualifier and ranks third in the nation this year. He had four marks of over 50 feet in the series. Honeycutt had a season-best long jump of 23-09.50 feet (7.25 meters) to rank 13th in the nation.

 

Others nominated: Devin Claypool, UCM; Max Alonso, FHSU; Corey Reynolds, MSSU.
