App State men's track & field athlete Eric Haddock Jr. has been named Sun Belt Field Athlete of the Week, the league announced Wednesday.
At the ETSU Track & Field Invitational over the weekend, Haddock Jr. earned field MVP honors after winning the long jump with a PR leap of 24-9.75 (7.56m). His mark currently sits first in the Sun Belt by over six inches and 11th in the nation. In addition, the jump also ranks fifth all-time in program history.
Haddock Jr. also owns the third best mark in the conference in the triple jump, covering 48-0.50 (14.64m) at the Appalachian Open on Dec. 6.
Haddock Jr. and the Mountaineers will compete again on Sunday at the JDL January College Kick-Off in Winston-Salem. App State then heads to VMI on Jan. 25 for the VMI Team Challenge.
