Craig Amado
For his performance at the Harvard Invitational on Dec. 11, RIC freshman Craig Amado of Providence was named Little East Conference Rookie Field Athlete of the Week.

Amado broke the RIC triple jump record (14.28m) with a first place finish, which provisionally qualified him for the 2011 NCAA Men's Indoor Championships. He also placed 13th in the 400m (51.11).

Amado established a new program record in the long jump last week at the Springfield Invitational.

The Anchormen track and field team will resume competition at the Southern Maine Invitational on Saturday, Jan. 8.
