OVC honors Redhawks' Terry, Brewer

Thursday, January 22, 2009

Two Southeast Missouri State track athletes have been honored by the Ohio Valley Conference.

Tyler Terry is the male field athlete of the week, while Shemeika Brewer is the co-female field athlete of the week.

Terry, a sophomore from Central High School, was third in the long jump and fifth in the triple jump at a meet hosted by Southern Illinois.

Terry has the top long jump in the OVC so far this indoor season (24 feet, 1 inch) and he has the second-best triple jump (46-10 3/4).

Brewer, a freshman, was second in the triple jump at the SIU meet. Her distance of 38-7 1/2 is the best in the OVC this year.

Southeast's track teams compete Saturday at the Illinois State Invitational.
