A top-10 finish in a quality national field has earned Jim Belfatto the honor as the GEICO – AU Student-Athlete of the Week for the period ending Sunday, Feb. 1.
Belfatto, a freshman from Broomall, Pa., ran 4:14.25 to place 10th in the men's mile at the Armory Track Invitational. His competitors included student-athletes from as far away as the University of Arizona and the University of Missouri.
Belfatto's mark was under the qualifying standard for the IC4A Indoor Championships.
The Eagle track team will compete next at the Townsend Invitational, to be held Saturday at Maryland-Eastern Shore.
