FAIRFIELD, Conn. - Marc Troiani (Valhalla, N.Y.) of the Sacred Heart men's track and field team was named the NEC Men's Field Athlete of the Week on Tuesday after winning both the shot put and discus at the FDU Knight Classic on Saturday.
The 2014 NEC weight throw champion at the indoor championship has made himself the early-season favorite to capture a conference crown in the discus and the shot put. Troiani won both of those throwing events while competing at the FDU Knights Classic this past weekend. The veteran thrower widened his league lead in the discus, registering a top throw of 46.63m (153') at FDU. Troiani also tops the NEC performance list in the shot put thanks to the season-opening mark he put forth at CCSU meet.
