For the third time this year, senior Jarrett Mickens (Aurora, Ill./Waubonsie Valley) has been honored by the Horizon League as its Male Field Athlete of the Week.

Mickens picks up the weekly honor after winning the triple jump for the third time in five meets this season Saturday at the GVSU Big Meet.  The senior earned his victory in the triple jump on Saturday with ease, leaping 47’5” to out-pace the second-place finisher by nearly 18 inches.  Mickens also placed second in the long jump, recording a mark of 23’0 ½”.

On the season, Mickens has posted the Horizon League’s best distance in the triple jump and currently ranks second in the long jump.  With the weekly honor from the league office, the fifth overall of his career, Mickens is now eligible for voting for ‘The People’s Choice’ on the Horizon League Network, with the poll available on the Horizon League website Tuesday morning through mid-day Thursday.
