KINGSTON, R.I. - University of Rhode Island senior Andre' Reid (South Windsor, Conn.) was named the ECAC Men's Field Performer of the Week for the third time this year for his NCAA Regional qualifying mark in the shot put at Navy's quad meet on Saturday.

Reid, the three-time defending Atlantic 10 outdoor shot put champion, threw the shot 55-feet-5 inches to also qualify for the IC4A Championship. The toss is the best mark in the Atlantic 10 this spring and was good for second place in the quad meet at Navy which also included Colgate and Rutgers. Reid was also named Atlantic 10 Performer of the Week for the third time this year for his performance.

Reid is the three-time defending Atlantic 10 champion in the indoor shot put and was the New England indoor champion this winter.
