Athlete of the Week:
Javelina Athletics: RICHARDSON, Texas (LSC/TAMUK) – Senior Charles Greaves was named the Lone Star Conference Co-Field Athlete of the Week after his brilliant performance over the past weekend at the ASU Dave Noble Relays.
Greaves leapt to 7.90 meters (25-11) in the long jump on Sunday for his second NCAA Automatic Qualifying mark in as many weeks. The Bridgetown, Barbados, native also set an AQ mark in the triple jump at the 91st Clyde Littlefield Texas Relays the week before.
The senior is the second Javelina male field athlete to claim a share of the award after redshirt-junior Richard Cervantes took the honor home last week for his performance in Austin. Greaves is also the only athlete, male or female, to have at least a share of both the LSC Outdoor Track and Field weekly awards as he brought home the honor on March 22 following his performance at the Cactus Cup.
Greaves posted a pair of NCAA provo times in the 100 meter dash and as a member of the 4x100 meter relay team at the competition in Kingsville to earn the track portion of the award.

Lone Star Series:
From Javelina Athletics: KINGSVILLE, Texas – The No. RV/17 Texas A&M University-Kingsville baseball program made its way back into the National Collegiate Baseball Writers Association (NCBWA) poll on Wednesday following a series win over then-No. 17 Angelo State at Nolan Ryan Field.
The Hogs also made a climb in the Collegiate Baseball Division II poll released on April 9 to the 17th spot leading up to a four-game series against Eastern New Mexico this upcoming weekend.
TAMUK took three of four from the Rams this past weekend after turning in a 16-2 win in game one behind the arm of freshman Tyler Flores (San Antonio, Texas), who hurled seven innings of four-hit ball to go with 12 punchouts in only his second start.
The Blue and Gold dropped game two at 4-1 before senior Kyle Craft (Victoria, Texas) hurled a complete-game shutout in game three with four strikeouts to salvage the Saturday split with ASU. Craft would eventually take home the Lone Star Conference Pitcher of the Week award for his dominance on the mound.
