Armstrong Claims BIG EAST Field Athlete of the Week Honors
Dec. 12, 2017
Official BIG EAST Release
Armstrong collects his second BIG EAST weekly award, including his first such indoor honor after taking home a victory in the high jump at the season’s first meet, the Blue & Gold Invitational hosted by Notre Dame (Dec. 1). His mark of 2.17 meters (7-1.5 feet) was an indoor personal-best and rated No. 2 in program history while, at the time, ranking the second-best in the nation this season.
His height would’ve been good enough for an eighth-place finish at the 2017 NCAA Division I Championships. Currently, the Michigan City, Ind., native leads the BIG EAST and ranks fifth nationally.
After the conclusion of winter break, the Golden Eagles will return to action at the John Tierney Invitational hosted by UW-Milwaukee on Saturday, Jan. 20.
