Mege Collects First Career Big Ten Athlete of the Week Award
Quentin Mege

April 25, 2012

Minnesota junior Quentin Mege was named the Big Ten Outdoor Field Athlete of the Week for his performance at last weekend’s Iowa Musco Twilight Invitational.  Mege picked up a title in hammer throw event to earn him this week’s honor.

The Chelles, France native landed a career best mark of 215-0 (65.54m). His throw also bumps him up to number two on the all-time list and only nine inches behind assistant coach Lynden Reder, who holds the school record with a distance of 215-9 (65.76m). Mege is currently ranked first in the Big Ten and eighth in the country for the event.

This is the first outdoor award for the junior of his career. Minnesota’s Trey Davis was the last Golden Gopher to be named Big Ten Outdoor Field Athlete of the Week this past March.
