Beloit Sophomore Grady Seyfert has been named the Telephone and Cable Athlete of the Week.

Seyfert has been dominant of late in field events for the Trojan track and field team.  In his last three meets, he has swept the gold medals in the throwing events he competes in, the discus and shot put.  This past Thursday, May 6 at the Riley County Invitational at Valley Heights, he won the discus with a career best throw of 162'7" and took the gold in the shot put at 48'6 1/4".  At Minneapolis on Tuesday, May 4, Seyfert won the discus at 152'6" and the shot put at 48'10 1/2".  He also claimed the gold in both events at the Beloit Relays on April 30 with a throw of 152'11" in the discus and 49'5 3/4" in the shot put.  His season best shot put mark was 50'11 1/2" at Phillipsburg on April 23, where he claimed the silver medal.  In the seven events for Beloit so far this season, Seyfert has brought home 14 medals, claiming gold five times in the discus and four times in the shot put.
