UMBC track and field sophomore Jamal Cody has been named UMBC Northwestern Mutual Athlete of the Week for contests ending April 17.
Cody was one of three Retrievers to set a new school record at the Bucknell Outdoor Classic last Friday and Saturday. He joined Alexios Prodanas (hammer throw) and Sophia Cologer (3,000m steeplechase) in breaking a school record.
The Hereford native won gold in the 400m hurdles with a time of 52.73 to set the record. His time also ranks fifth in the America East this year, and earned him America East Track Performer of the Week.
