March 15, 2014

Albuquerque, N.M. -- DePaul senior Matt Babicz, the lone competitor for the Blue Demons at the National Indoor Championships this weekend, concluded his shot put competition by earning second team All-American honors on Saturday in Albuquerque.

Babicz registered a throw of 18.03 meters, good enough for 14th overall, which qualified him for second team status.

"Matt will become a better competitor for having had this experience," said head coach Dave Dopek. "We are very proud of the indoor season that he has had. Now we will all turn our sights toward the outdoor season."

Babicz qualified for the Championships with a throw of 19.43 meters at the Indiana Relays in late January. The throw won the Invitational section of the meet.
