Andre Reid Grabs Conference Honors

March 31, 2003

KINGSTON, R.I. - Rhode Island freshman Andre Reid (South Windsor, Conn.) was named as an Atlantic 10 Rookie of the week after his performance this weekend at the Northeastern Husky's Spring Open on Saturday.

Reid took second place in the shot put with his throw of 52'6", and forth in the discus (164'10"), also qualifying for ICAAAA competition in both events, in addition to taking a fifth place spot with his throw of 171'3" in the javelin.

In high school Reid won all-New England, all-Connecticut, and all-CIAC accolades in 2001. He was crowned champion at the invite-only Golden West Invitational in California as well as playing linebacker and running back for the school's football team.

The Husky's Spring Open was a non-scoring meet, but as a whole the Rams had athletes place within the top three in 11 of the 19 events.
