Following their performances in the season opening Crowell Open, cow Geoff Kirk and yearling Emily Mikoud have been named Patriot League Field Athletes of the Week for their respective sports.
Kirk made Army history in the meet, posting the first 18 meter shot put throw in program history. The Avon, Conn., native broke his own Academy record of 17.94 meters from a season ago. The mark tops the Patriot League charts by over a meter and is ninth in the NCAA.
Mikoud picked up right where she left off after her award winning plebe year, winning both the shot put (14.50m) and the weight throw (17.56m). She posted the top mark in the Patriot League in both events and topped her 2019 Patriot League Championship distances in both events.
The two will be back in action when Army hosts the West Point Open on Jan. 9 at Gillis Field House. Read more.
