Jan. 17, 2012
CHICAGO – For the second time in as many chances this season, DePaul senior thrower Tim Nedow has been named the BIG EAST Indoor Male Field Athlete of the Week as announced by the conference on Tuesday.

Louisville junior Michelle Theophille was named Female Field Athlete of the Week while Pittsburgh sophomore Brycen Spratling was named BIG EAST Male Track Athlete of the Week and Connecticut Freshman Lindsay Crevoiserat earned BIG EAST Female Track Athlete of the Week honors.
