Jan. 27, 2015

IRVING, Texas - Louisiana Tech redshirt junior Jarvis Gotch was named the Conference USA Male Field Athlete of the Week after his world-leading mark set in the long jump Saturday at Vanderbilt.

Gotch became just the 11th collegiate jumper - and the first from a non-Power 5 conference school - to jump over 8.00m (26-3) since 2010 as his mark of 26-7.75 (8.12m) became the world's best long jump mark of the 2015 indoor season on Saturday at the Vanderbilt Indoor Invitational. Gotch broke his own school record by five inches - a record he set last week at Texas A&M - as he extended his own lead in the long jump rankings among the NCAA performance list this season.

This marks the second consecutive week Gotch has been named the C-USA Male Field Athlete of the Week.
