NEW ORLEANS, La. – Cloud County Community College sophomore men’s track and field athlete Courtney Lawrence has been named United States Track and Field Cross Country Coaches Association NJCAA Track Athlete of the Week for his performance at the Kansas Jayhawk Community College Conference/NJCAA Region VI Invite on Sunday, January 31st.
Lawrence has quickly developed into one of the best throwers in NJCAA history, already notching three all-time top-10 marks this season in the shot put. Two of those efforts came this past weekend at the Region VI/KJCCC Invitational when he let it fly 18.92m (62-1) on his fourth attempt for the second-best mark in divisional history, not long after his second attempt went 18.25m (59-10½) for what is now the ninth-best mark in history.
This is the second time this season that Lawrence has been named National Athlete of the Week, after being named National Athlete of the Week on January 19th.
