CHARLOTTE, N.C. – Junior Evan Emery of the High Point University men’s track & field team was named the Big South Conference Choice Hotels Men’s Track Athlete of the Week, the league announced on Thursday. Emery turned in the lowest time of any Big South athlete in the 100-meters this season on Saturday at North Carolina A&T.
Emery ran a conference-best time of 10.36 in the preliminaries at the North Carolina A&T Aggie Invitational. The junior finished eighth in the event final.
Emery is the first HPU men’s track athlete to Athlete of the Week honors from the Big South this season. Sophomore Christian Spaulding was named the Field Athlete of the Week on March 28.
The Panthers head to Lynchburg, Va., this weekend for the Big South Outdoor Track & Field Championships. Emery is seeded first in the 100-meter dash and fourth in the 200-meter dash.
