Jan. 19, 2016

RUSTON, La. - Louisiana Tech redshirt senior Jarvis Gotch was named the Conference USA Athlete of the Week after setting a league-leading mark in the long jump over the weekend.

Gotch’s first long jump attempt of the season dominated the competition as he won gold at the Texas A&M-hosted Aggie Team Invitational. The Carencro, Louisiana native’s jump of 25-3.25 (7.70m) won by over two feet at the meet and ranks as the fifth-best mark in school history. Gotch currently ranks fifth in the nation after this weekend’s action and leads Conference USA by almost an entire foot this season as no one else in the league has jumped past the 25-foot mark in 2016.

Louisiana Tech returns to action on Jan. 29-30 when Gotch and the Bulldogs travel to Nashville, Tennessee for the Vanderbilt Invitational.
