The Big Ten announced its weekly track and field awards on Wednesday and Penn State’s Michael Shuey was named the conference’s Co-Field Athlete of the Week.
Shuey shared the award with Nebraska’s Nick Percy.
The Nittany Lions javelin hurler finished in first place at the Pac-12 vs. Big Ten Invitational this past weekend. His toss of 247-feet-2 inches fell just more than two feet shy of his school record of 249-5.
Shuey is ranked No. 2 in the NCAA leads the Big Ten with his recent throw.
