    Jan. 27, 2009

    IRVING, Texas – University of Houston sophomore Chris Carter was named the Conference USA Male Track & Field Athlete of the Week, as announced by the conference office on Tuesday.

    The Hearne, Texas, native set a provisional mark with a personal-best and first-place leap of 15.89m (52-01.75) in the triple jump at the Cherry & Silver Invitational in Albuquerque, N.M. on Saturday.

    Carter’s leap sits atop the C-USA charts and ranks as the fifth-longest mark in the NCAA this year.

    Carter also placed fourth in the long jump with a clearance of 7.11m (23-04.00), which ranks among the Top 5 marks recorded in conference this year.

    It marked the second-career athlete of the week award for Carter, the first for a Cougar this season.
