Armstrong, Julson named Athletes of the Week

GVL Staff

Senior Matt Armstrong and junior Larry Julson of the Grand Valley State University track and field team have been named the GLIAC Men’s Indoor Track & Field Athletes of the Week. Armstrong was awarded the Field Athlete of the Week for his performance at the Mike Lints Alumni Open. His first-place, 17.74 meter toss in the shot put became the furthest Division II throw so far this year. Julson was named the Track Athlete of the Week after finishing fourth in the 3,000 meter run with a time of 8 minutes, 17.83 seconds — good enough for an NCAA Division II Indoor Championship provisional qualifying mark. GVSU will return to action on Saturday when they host the GVSU Quad meet at the Kelly Family Sports Center at 1 p.m.
