Grove City College junior Nick Gustafson

GROVE CITY, Pa. -- The Presidents' Athletic Conference honored Grove City College junior Nick Gustafson (Newburg, Pa./Shippensburg) as its indoor track and field Field Athlete of the Week selection Tuesday afternoon.

Gustafson broke his own school record in the shot put last Saturday at Mount Union's Jim Wuske Invitational by recording a best heave of 51 feet, 8.25 inches. Gustafson finished third overall and first among Division III throwers. It marked the third straight meet in which Gustafson set the school record in the indoor shot put.

Gustafson also ranks 20th in Division III so far this season.

This is Gustafson's second Field Athlete of the Week selection this season. He also earned the award two weeks ago.

The Grove City thinclads return to action Friday afternoon at Baldwin Wallace University's Mid-February Open in Berea, Ohio.
