GROVE CITY, Pa. – Grove City College junior thrower Quinton Reed (Oil City, Pa./Oil City) earned Eastern College Athletic Conference (ECAC) Division III South Field Athlete of the Week honors in recognition of his performance last week at the Presidents’ Athletic Conference North Quad in Beaver Falls.

Reed won the javelin April 12 at the Quad with a season-best throw of 180 feet, 6 inches. That is the best throw in the conference this season by 17 feet. Reed also took fourth in the shot put (40-6 1/2) and fourth in the discus (116-8) at the meet.

Reed also earned Presidents’ Athletic Conference Men’s Field Athlete of the Week laurels earlier this week. He is the defending conference champion in the javelin.

Grove City returns to action Thursday afternoon at the Slippery Rock University Open. The conference championships will be held April 28-29 in Beaver Falls.
