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 morning. Prodanas continued his torrid winter by breaking his school record in the weight throw at the Sykes & Sabock Challenge Cup last Saturday.
The Greece native finished the event in second place with a new school record throw of 19.54m, besting his throw of 18.98m at the NYC Gotham Cup a couple weeks prior. This is the third time the mark has been broken this year, with his toss of 18.87m at the Great Dane Classic in early January being the first time.
The Retrievers will be back in action this Friday, Feb. 8 when they head back to Staten Island for the Fastrack National Invite.
