Federated Insurance Sacramento State Student-Athlete of the Week, Feb. 6-12

Darius Armstead is this week’s Federated Insurance Sacramento State Student-Athlete of the Week after his school-record breaking performances at the Husky Classic and UW Open in Seattle.

The junior jumped 49-07.00 in the triple jump to finish first in the Husky Classic on Saturday. That mark broke the school record of 49-05.50 which had stood since 1998. Just one day later, he returned to action at the UW Open and produced a jump of 50-07.50 on his final attempt of the day. That distance was the best in the meet and moved him to the top of the Big Sky list as well as 46th nationally.

Armstead will next turn his attention to winning a Big Sky Conference title. The championships begin with the heptathlon and pentathlon on Thursday, Feb. 23, in Pocatello, Idaho. The main program of the meet will take place on Feb. 24-25.
