WASHINGTON - Georgetown University track & field All-American Spencer Brown (Wilton, Conn./Wilton) was named the BIG EAST Conference Men’s Track Athlete of the Week on Tuesday as announced by the league. The honor comes after the Hoya men opened the season at the Navy Invitational, hosted by the U.S. Naval Academy at the Wesley Brown Field House on Dec. 3. The meet was highlighted by a quartet of event titles and eight marks among the top three.
Brown eclipsed the men’s 800-meter field by more than a 2-second margin, clocking 1:54.23. The time is the fastest in the BIG EAST Conference and the 11th-best mark in the country.
This is the first BIG EAST weekly award of Brown’s career and the first of the season for the Blue & Gray.
Both the men’s and women’s teams will take a break until they resume competition in the new year.
