Duluth, MN (NNCNOW.com) --- St. Scholastica sophomore Jeremy Peterson and senior Becky Huberty were named the Upper Midwest Athletic Conference (UMAC) track and field athletes of the week, it was announced on Tuesday.

Peterson claimed the award after winning both the shot put and weight throw events at the Super 8 Open at Bemidji State last Saturday. He was only four centimeters shy of tying in the program record in the shot put and set a career best in the weight throw.

Huberty also won both events at last weekend's event. She broke her own record in the shot put and currently ranks fourth in DIII. She just missed out on the school record in the weight throw and sits third in the country.
