DENTON, Texas (1/23/08) Following his first place performance at the Texas Tech Indoor Invitational to open up the indoor season, the Mean Green’s Toby Edwards has been honored as the Sun Belt Conference Male Field Athlete of the Week.
Toby Edwards showed that last season’s results were no fluke, as the junior from Athens, Texas, placed first in the high jump at the Texas Tech Invite. Edwards, who set the school record and was the conference indoor champion in the high jump last year, cleared 6-10.25, nearly two feet better than second place finisher Justin Turner from Texas Tech.
It is the first time in his three-year career at North Texas that Edwards has earned SBC Field Athlete of the Week.
The North Texas track and field team will be back in action this weekend as they travel to Fayetteville, Ark., to compete at the Razorback Invitational.
