KINGSTON, R.I. - Rhode Island freshman Jack Reichenbach has been named the Atlantic 10 Men's Track and Field Rookie of the Week for the second time this season.
Reichenbach had a career day at the Dr. Sanders Columbia Challenge this past week. On Friday he placed third in the long jump with a career best 7.28 meters (23' 10.75"). That mark leads the conference in the event and was third all-time in school history. On Saturday he came back to set a personal best in the high jump with a mark of 2.04 meters (6' 8.25") qualifying him for the IC4A Championships in both events. He's currently second in the high jump in the A-10.
Reichenbach and the rest of Rhody men's track and field returns to competition this weekend at the New England Championship. The meet is scheduled to begin Friday at 10:00 a.m. at the Reggie Lewis Center in Boston, Mass.
