NEW ORLEANS, La. (1/31/18) – Arkansas State senior thrower Itamar Levi was named Sun Belt Conference Co-Athlete of the Week after his performance last weekend at the A-State Invitational, the league office announced Wednesday. 

Levi won the shot put competition with a throw of 19.36m (63-6.25). The mark broke his own Israeli national record and moves him up to 10th nationally and atop the league performance list. Levi has claimed top honors in three of the four meets this season, winning the individual shot put title at the Kickoff Klassic, Samford Invitational and A-State Invitational.

A-State track and field teams split up this weekend for two different meets. Roughly 20 athletes head to New Mexico for the New Mexico Classic while other members of the team will compete at the SIU Saluki Invitational.
