Kurt Hibert, a member of the UNC Asheville men’s track and field team, is this week’s recipient of the Blue Cross and Blue Shield of North Carolina Athlete of the Week at UNC Asheville.

 

Each week the school selects a BCBSNC Athlete of the Week upon their performance from the previous week's action.

 

Hibert set a school-record in the hammer throw on Saturday at the JDL Kickoff Classic in Winston-Salem. He had a throw of 17.59 meters in the event and finished in third place against a very tough field. Hibert’s throw was .64 (16.95) better than the record he set last year at the Big South Indoor Championships. In addition, Kurt had a throw of 13.63 in the shot put which was a personal best for the California native. He finished 11th in that event.

 

The Bulldogs will take some time off for Christmas and compete next at the Orange and White Classic at Clemson on Jan. 11
