Boston, Mass.-- UMBC track and field junior Alexios Prodanas (Kilkis, Greece) was named America East Male Field Performer of the Week, the conference announced on Tuesday afternoon. Prodanas earned the honor after a record setting week for the Retrievers at the NYC Gotham Cup.
Prodanas broke the school record, that he set a week earlier, in the weight throw at the NYC Gotham Cup in Staten Island on Friday. His toss of 18.98m just beat out his toss of 18.97m he has just six days earlier at the Great Dane Classic.
The Retrievers will head to both the Penn State National meet and the George Mason Invite on Friday and Saturday. Half of the team will be in State College for the two day meet, with the other half in Fairfax on Saturday
