ST. LOUIS – Saint Louis freshman Ethan Erusha was named the Atlantic 10 Conference track and field Rookie of the Week, the league announced today.

Erusha becomes the third Billiken in two weeks to be honored by the A-10. Last week, Ann Harlos and Michael Reader collected A-10 Performer of the Week honors.

Competing at the Tom Botts Invitational at Missouri last weekend, Erusha registered a height of 1.98 meters in the high jump. That was a seasonal best for the Billikens and is the second-best mark in the A-10. He also competed in the triple jump at Mizzou, posting a first-place mark of 13.41 meters.

Erusha and the Billikens are back in action this weekend at the Pacesetter Invitational, hosted by Indiana State University, in Terre Haute, Indiana.
