CAMBRIDGE, Mass. – For the fifth time this season, senior Brice Paey (Milton, N.H.) of the University of New Hampshire men's indoor track & field team was named the America East Field Performer of the Week, announced by the league Tuesday afternoon.
Paey won the shot put event for the sixth time this season with a first-place showing against Maine and Vermont. The senior heaved a school-record toss of 60'3" for a personal best, breaking the school-record he set last week at the Dartmouth Invitational with a throw of 60-00.25. Paey has already qualified for the IC4A Championships this season and has also reached the NCAA provisional mark for the automatic qualification in the event. This is Paey's fifth weekly award this season.
Paey and both sides of the UNH track & field team return to action at the America East Championships on Feb. 17-18, held at Boston University's Track & Tennis Center.
