East Stroudsburg University freshman William Berry has been named the PSAC Men's Field Athlete of the Week after reaching the NCAA Division II provisional qualifying standard in the high jump at the Warriors' annual All-American Meet on Saturday at Eiler-Martin Stadium.
Berry cleared 6-8 3/4, the top mark in the PSAC this season and the conference's only athlete on the NCAA provisional list. He tied the meet record set by Kutztown's Cody Hartzler in 2009.
Berry also ran the 200m dash about five minutes after completing the high jump, running a time of 23.80 seconds to finish 20th of 61 entrants.
During the indoor season, Berry tied for third at the PSAC Championships in the high jump at 6-6 3/4, ran on the Warriors' winning 4x400m relay and the third-place Distance Medley Relay.
He is tied for 17th on the NCAA DII list in the high jump this spring.
Berry's mark was one of 14 meet records either set or tied at the 8th Annual All-American Meet.
