OVC recognizes Southeast Missouri State's Carter, Miller in track and field

Wednesday, January 16, 2013

The Southeast Missouri State men's indoor track and field program has earned two Ohio Valley Conference athlete of the week honors.

Junior Blake Carter was named co-track athlete of the week and sophomore Reggie Miller Jr. was named co-field athlete of the week, the league announced Tuesday.

Carter set the school record in the 60-meter dash with a first-place time of 6.76 seconds at the Eastern Illinois Early Bird on Dec. 7. He has also won two long jump titles this year.

Miller opened his indoor season over the weekend at the SIU Saluki Open by breaking the school's indoor high jump record with a winning height of 7 feet, 1/4 inch. The mark is the best by an OVC athlete since the 2009-10 campaign.
