Wright Named Big Ten Field Athlete of the Week

Nebraska junior Chad Wright was honored by the Big Ten Conference on Wednesday as he was named the Big Ten Male Field Athlete of the Week. The award marks the third Big Ten outdoor track and field weekly award of his career and first this season.

Wright finished first in the discus at the Nebraska Quad last Saturday, notching a season best throw of 199-6 (60.82). His mark ranks first in the Big Ten and third in the nation this season.

The Huskers hit the road this week for competition at the Kansas Relays in Lawrence, Kan., and the Mt. SAC Relays in Walnut, Calif.
