YORK, Pa. – The Capital Athletic Conference league office released weekly honors for the week ending February 4. Salisbury University Men's Track & Field junior Matthew Adedeji earned conference recognition for his performance at the Vince Brown Invitational over the weekend.

Adedeji not only captured a victory but also broke a school record in the triple jump. Adedeji's jump of 46' 7.25" earned the Sea Gulls their second win of the day overall and only win on the men's side. His jump broke the record previously held by Zack White by 1.25 inches. It also currently ranks second in the CAC and 13th overall in NCAA Division III Indoor Track & Field this season.
