SOMERSET, N.J. – Sacred Heart men's track and field sophomore thrower Cameron Croce earned his second Northeast Conference Most Outstanding Field Athlete of the Week honor of the 2019-20 season, as announced by the conference office on Tuesday afternoon.
Croce, a three-time NEC Rookie of the Week last season, earned his second NEC Field Athlete of the Week award over the last three weeks as he won the weight throw event at the UAlbany Winter Classic this past Friday.

Croce out-performed all NEC weight throwers this past week while winning the UAlbany Winter Classic. The second-year Pioneer won the competition on his final attempt, sending the 32-pound weight 17.90m (58' 8.75") to overtake Monmouth's Brandon Davis for gold. Croce's latest mark would rank 32nd overall amongst IC4A Championship qualifiers, but the SHU sophomore already owns the No. 19 spot on the list thanks to the 18.59m school record fling he logged at the John Thomas Terrier Classic on Jan. 25. Croce, the current NEC leader, earned a silver medal during his NEC Championship debut last February.
The Pioneers are back in action this weekend with an appearance at the Giegengack Invitational on Saturday, Feb. 15, hosted by Yale University at Coxe Cage in New Haven.
