Middlebury College track athlete Jack Davies (Grosse Pointe, Mich.) has been named the U.S. Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association (USTFCCCA) Division III national male athlete of the week. Davies won the Princeton Larry Ellis Invitational 3000 steeplechase, primarily against DI and DII competition, in 8:52.12 — the 10th fastest time in Division III history. His time is a new school record at Middlebury and a 2½ second improvement over his previous career best that earned him runner-up honors at the NCAA DIII Outdoor Championships. He won this weekend’s race by nearly seven seconds en route to the 21st fastest time among all collegians this season.
