GARRETT GARZA OF TEXAS LUTHERAN UNIVERSITY, a senior from Round Rock, Texas, has been named the SCAC Field Athlete of the Week for meets held through Sunday, April 14.
Garza continued his dominance in the shot put event at the UIW Invitational in San Antonio, besting all college competitors in all divisions with a toss of 16.51 meters (54-2). Not to be outdone in the discus, Garza threw to the top of the SCAC with a third-place overall in the collegiate competition (only Division 1 competitors ahead of him) at a mark of 47.48 meters (155-9).
Other Outstanding Performances in the SCAC:
Senior Henry Baldwin of Colorado College high jumped 2.05 meters ( 6' 8 3/4") at the Colorado School of Mines Track Invitation in a field composed mostly of NCAA Division I and Division II schools. This tied Henry for the mark at the meet, and he remains the top high jumper in the SCAC. Freshman Tanner Lacy of Trinity had a solid meet at the UCSD Triton Invitational as the first-year cleared a bar of 4.30m in the pole vault. Tanner currently ranks #1 in the conference in the event. Sophomore Devin Rosas of Southwestern won the men’s long jump with a leap of 6.69 meters at the UIW Invitational.
