NEWPORT NEWS, Va. – Senior hurdler Jordan Benson has been named the Atlantic-10 Men’s Track Performer of the Week for his record-breaking performance in the 60-meter hurdles on Sunday. 

Benson, a senior from Mason, Michigan started off his indoor campaign with a bang at Sunday’s JDL Early Bird Invitational in Winston-Salem. In the prelims, Benson ran the top time with an 8.09 to make it into the final heat. In the finals, Benson topped that performance by breaking the program record with a time of 7.94. This time broke the previous record that was set by Jayden Smith last season. 

With this mark, Benson currently ranks tied for seventh fastest in Division I.
