Oskaloosa–Derek Seddon (Sr., Knoxville, Iowa, Physical Education) capped the weekly honors schedule with one more accolade as he was named Heart of America Athletic Conference Men’s Field Athlete of the Week Monday.
Seddon got into double figures for his career (now with 10, six this season) as he won two crowns at the Simpson Kip Janvrin Open.
The senior improved his shot put distance to an automatic-qualifying standard of 52-10.25, giving him three events in which he is at the ‘A’ mark (also discus and hammer).
Seddon won the shot put competition with that throw and also topped all discus throwers at 173-4. He took 12th in the hammer as well at 162-4.
Seddon currently ranks first nationally in the discus, 11th in the shot put, and 15th in the hammer. Incredibly, he leads the Heart in all three events entering this week’s league championship meet.
The weekly accolade is the ninth for William Penn this season.
