NEW ORLEANS, La. (4/12/17) – Pole vaulter Michael Carr, hurdler Shemiah Brooks and thrower Erin Farmer of the Arkansas State track and field program each received weekly honors, the league office announced Wednesday.  

Farmer, the Female Field Athlete of the Week, improved her own school record in shot put to 17.93m (58-10.00) to win the Sun Angel Classic. The throw ranks her third nationally and atop the Sun Belt Conference and NCAA West Region performance lists.

Carr, named the Male Field Athlete of the Week, posted a personal-best pole vault of 5.22m (17-01.50) to take first place in the Sun Angel Classic. That mark puts him 20th nationally and 12th in the NCAA West Region. He ranks second in the Sun Belt heading into the final weeks of the outdoor season.

Brooks, the Female Track Athlete of the Week, posted a 100-meter hurdles time of 13.93 seconds in the highly-competitive field at the Sun Angel Classic to place seventh. That performance moves her to the top of the league performance list and she moves closer to a NCAA Regional qualifying time. She also competed in the long jump posting a leap of 5.53m (18-01.75).  

The Red Wolves will have student-athletes competing at the UCA Open this weekend before hosting the Red Wolves Open April 21-22 at the A-State Track & Field Complex.
