Finley Named Mountain West Athlete of the Week

April 15, 2014

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. - Wyoming's Mason Finley has been named the Mountain West Outdoor Track and Field Male Athlete of the Week, the conference office announced on Tuesday. The weekly accolade is the fourth for Finley this season, which ties Jake Shanklin in 2009 for the most by a Wyoming athlete in one season. Finley has won the award five times in his career.

Finley highlighted a productive weekend for the Cowboys with a win in the discus at last Friday's CU Invite in Boulder, Colo. His season-best throw of 197-1 moved him to second all-time in Wyoming history in the event, while ranking 10th in the nation currently. His throw is the furthest in the Mountain West this season by more than 15 feet.

Wyoming continues its season at three meets in California this weekend.
