Ripon, WI -- Travis Towns, a junior from Janesville, Wisconsin (Edgerton), competing for the Beloit College Track & Field team, has been named the Midwest Conference Field Event Performer of the Week for the week ending April 5. The Conference Office announced the honor on Tuesday afternoon.
Towns won the Javelin at the University of Chicago Ted Haydon Invite last Saturday with a toss of 53.38m (175’1.57), besting the second-place finisher by nearly 15 feet. The effort ranks as the best in the MWC this season to date.
The Buccaneers continue their Outdoor schedule this coming Saturday at the Carroll University Pioneer Invite in Waukesha. Action begins at 11:00 a.m.
