Josh Himes Named HCAC Field Athlete of the Week

TERRE HAUTE, Ind. -- Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology sophomore Josh Himes has been named Heartland Collegiate Athletic Conference Field Athlete of the Week for the second time during the indoor season after a strong performance at DePauw University last Saturday.

Himes won the men's weight throw with a mark of 52' 4 3/4" and placed third in the shot put with a 49' 6 1/4" toss on Saturday.  His shot put mark was a career-best performance and helped Rose-Hulman earn the team championship at the meet.

The honor marks the second time this season that Himes has been named HCAC Field Athlete of the Week.  He previously earned the award after finishing first and second in the weight throw and shot put at the Rose-Hulman Engineer Invitational on January 30.

Rose-Hulman returns to action at the Heartland Collegiate Athletic Conference Indoor Championships, hosted by Defiance College, on Saturday.
