Brocks named Syracuse University Male Scholar-Athlete of the Week

Sophomore Michael Brocks (Staatsburg, N.Y.) is the Syracuse University Male Scholar-Athlete of the Week for the week of January 19, 2009.

On January 16, the track and field team hosted the SU Welcome Back Meet in Manley Field House. The men recorded five first place finishes and three runner-up finishes, while the women earned 10 first place crowns and eight second place finishes.

Brocks, also a member of the Syracuse cross country team, recorded a third place finish in the meet in the 3,000 meter run with a time of 8:49.47. It was his second top five finish of the season after he finished fourth (15:41.92) in the 5K in December at the Cornell Relays.

Last season, Brocks competed in two meets. In the Syracuse Invite, he finished fifth in the 3,000m event with a time of 8:55.26 and he placed sixth in the Upstate Challenge in the 5,000m race running at a clip of 15:33.33.

Brocks, an information management and technology major, and the rest of the Syracuse University track and field team will be back in action on January 24 at the Cornell Upstate Challenge.
