EDWARDSVILLE, Ill. – SIUE Athletics has joined with Prairie Farms Dairy, Inc., to take time each week to honor a Cougar student-athlete who excels both in competition and in the classroom.

This week's honoree is men's track and field student-athlete Mladen Hristov. A senior from Rousse, Bulgaria, Hristov is pursuing a degree in applied communication studies with a minor in public health and has a grade point average of 3.53.

Hristov has had a strong start to the indoor track and field season this year, posting the best triple jump of the season for the Cougars at 48 feet, 8.75 inches (14.85m) at the Don DeNoon Invitational.

He placed ninth in the triple jump at the 2016 OVC Indoor Championships, along with a top-five finish in the triple jump at three separate meets. Hristov also has a pair of top-two finishes this season in the long jump.
