Joseph Named Little East Rookie Field Athlete of the Week

NORTH DARTMOUTH, Mass. – Freshman high jumper Carl Joseph (Brockton, Mass.) has been named the Little East Conference Rookie Field Athlete of the Week after claiming first place at the 2012 NCAA Division III New England Regional meet on Saturday.

The Brockton native was sensational in Saturday's regional championship meet, as he helped the men's team to a program first eighth place finish.  In the high jump, Joseph leaped his way to a height of 6-09.00 feet which secured the top spot for the Beacon.  UMass also went on to take second and third in the high jump to help add to their program best score.

On the year, Joseph's jump of 6-10.25 feet still ranks amongst the top marks in Division III.  The Beacons will be off this weekend, but will return to action next weekend when they compete in the ECAC Division III Outdoor Championship Meet which will be held at RPI in Troy, New York.
