SCIAC Athletes of the Week

WHITTIER, Calif. – The Southern California Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (SCIAC) announced their Athletes of the Week Tuesday and sophomore Garrett Silva (Whittier, Calif.) was named the Field Athlete of the Week for Men's Track & Field in the sixth week of voting.

The recognition is the first for Silva in his career and the first for the Men's Track & Field team this season.  Silva led the Poets in the field events at the Point Loma Invitational. He tied the school record in the pole vault with a mark of 15'5'', which won the event and currently ranks first in the West Region and fourth nationally in the event.

Whittier returns to competition this Saturday, March 30 when they take part in SCIAC No. 2.  It will be hosted by Caltech.
