KINGSTON, R.I. - Rhode Island senior thrower Brandon Amo earned Atlantic 10 Field Performer of the Week honors for his performance at the URI Sorlien Memorial Meet, the league office announced Tuesday. This is the first weekly conference accolade for the Warwick, R.I. native.

Amo finished second in the weight throw with a distance of 19.31 meters (63' 4.25"). His throw tied him for eighth all-time in Rhode Island history. It was also the farthest throw in the conference since 2015.

Rhode Island returns to the track this Saturday, Jan. 27 to compete in the Boston University Terrier Classic.
