Conklin, Foster Earn Weekly GLIAC Field Honors

Seniors Jared Conklin and Jennifer Foster are this week's Great Lakes Intercollegiate Athletic Conference Field Athletes of the Week.

Conklin and Foster turned in two of an impressive 19 NCAA Division II provisional efforts by the Eagles, and two of three Ashland NCAA Division II automatic qualifying marks, at the Golden Flash Gala at Kent State on Dec. 5-6. Conklin's 70-feet-3 showing in the men's weight throw was the top mark at the Gala, as was Foster's 5-feet-10½ effort in the women's high jump.

Ashland's men's and women's indoor track and field teams will compete on Friday, Jan. 16, at the Northwest Ohio Invitational in Findlay.
