FRISCO, Texas – Long jumper Morrie Turner became the second Golden Eagle this season to be honored by the Southland Conference as he was named the Men’s Field Athlete of the Week on Wednesday.

The honor comes after Turner won the long jump event at the Wichita State Track-It-Buster meet this past weekend. The senior jumped to a mark of 24-10. It was his best performance of the season, as well as the second-best mark in the Southland this season.

A native of Batesville, Miss., Turner has won three events during the outdoor season, including the Tulsa Duels and the Kansas Relays.

Two Golden Eagles received Athlete of the Week honorable mention selections from the conference: Madison Reynolds for women’s track and Jeffery Gibson for men’s track.
