Harvey Wins Third Straight OVC Field Athlete of the Week

BRENTWOOD, Tenn. – Julian Harvey of SIUE men's track and field earned his third straight Ohio Valley Conference Field Athlete of the Week Award for his performance at the SIUE – SEMO Dual meet last Friday.

Harvey jumped to two first-place finishes in the high jump and the long jump. His height of 6 feet, 9.75 inches won him the high jump, while a personal best jump of 24-2.5 earned him the victory in the long jump.

"What is most impressive about Julian this year is that his mindset has evolved and he comes to every meet ready to perform at his best," said Jumps Coach Joey Pacione. "He worked hard to make changes during the offseason and we're seeing that pay off with the consistency he is displaying week after week."

He currently holds the top mark in both the high jump and the long jump in the OVC.

SIUE men's and women's track and field continue their indoor season Friday and Saturday at the SIU Invitational in Carbondale, Illinois.
