With a nation-best heave of 73-0 (22.25m) in the weight throw at the Gene Edmonds Invitational this weekend, Purdue's Chukwuebuka Enekwechi broke all sorts of records -- namely the meet, facility and school records at Purdue --- en route to being named the first USTFCCCA National Athlete of the Week of the 2014 season. His final margin of victory was nearly 13 feet, and surpassed 71 feet on three of his five legal attempts. He now leads Kent State's Matthias Tayala -- a sophomore, himself -- by 9½ inches.

He also won the shot put with a personal-best indoor throw of 61-11 (18.87m), giving him the nation's eighth-best mark in that event.

Indiana's Drouin Wins Bowerman Award

| No Comments | No TrackBacks
Olympic medalist and five-time NCAA Champion Derek Drouin of Indiana added another honor to his impressive list of accolades as he was selected as the winner of the 2013 Bowerman Trophy - the highest honor given to the most outstanding male and female student-athletes in collegiate track & field. Drouin becomes the first Big Ten student-athlete to take home the award.

It was a banner year for Drouin, as the indoor and outdoor US Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association (USTFCCCA) Indoor and Outdoor National Field Athlete of the Year. He became the first to sweep both the indoor and outdoor NCAA Division I high jump titles in one academic year since he did so in 2010, becoming the NCAA's first five-time high jump champion. The Canadian won at heights of 7-8 (2.34m) or greater and took cracks at collegiate records at both championships. He finished unbeaten in nine collegiate high jump finals between indoors and outdoors. For his accomplishments on the year, Drouin was named the Jesse Owens Big Ten Male Athlete of the Year.


For his Indiana track & field career, Drouin was a seven-time All-American and became the first athlete in NCAA history to win five NCAA titles in the high jump. Drouin also earned two Bronze Medals, one from the 2012 London Olympics and one at the 2013 World Championships.

Indiana's Derek Drouin, the Big Ten Jesse Owens Male Athlete of the Year, has been named a finalist for The Bowerman Trophy - the highest honor given to the most outstanding male and female student-athletes in collegiate track & field.

Drouin was named the National Indoor and Outdoor Field Athlete of the Year after winning both NCAA high jump titles, becoming only the second student-athlete to win both honors in the same season. Drouin has won five NCAA high jump titles, the only five-time champion in the event's history, and seven Big Ten Championships crowns. An Olympic bronze Medalist, the Corunna, Ontario, native becomes the second Big Ten student-athlete in consecutive seasons to be named a finalist for the Bowerman, following Illinois' Andrew Riley in 2012.
