RMU Student-Athlete of the Week (5/30/12)


The final installment for RMU Student-Athlete of the Week honors for the 2011-12 season features a pair of male student-athletes, the first of which competed in the javelin last week at the 2012 NCAA East Preliminary Round in Jacksonville, Fla. Sophomore Chris Carper of the RMU track & field team, competing in the javelin for just the third time in 2012, finished 26th after compiling a toss of 61.38 meters (201'4"). The appearance in the 2012 NCAA East Preliminary Round marks the second straight year Carper qualified for the meet. His season high toss of 65.44 meters (214'8") came at the 2012 IC4A Championships, which helped him earn silver in the event.
