BEMIDJI, Minn. - The Northern Sun Intercollegiate Conference announced today that Junior Adam Wilson (Forest Lake, Minn.) has been named Field Athlete of the Week for his efforts on Friday in the Beavers Classic.

Wilson extended his own school record set earlier this year in the weight throw with a toss of 54 feet, beating his old mark by four inches. Wilson added to his record-breaking performance by taking first place in the shot put with a throw of 49-11 1/2.

Wilson was awarded the same honor on January 24, for his record-breaking throw the week before in the weight throw with his toss of 53-8.

Bemidji State will next be in action as they host the Northern Sun Intercollegiate Conference’s Indoor Championships beginning on Friday and running through Saturday in the Gillett Recreation and Fitness Center.
