Men's Outdoor Track & Field
June 1, 2017

Jeremi Barnes repeats as the Male Eagle of the Month after becoming the first Eagle to sweep an entire season in a single event, winning every single Men's Triple Jump event this season up until his 13th place finish at the NAIA Outdoor Track and Field National Championships in Gulf Shores, Ala.

Barnes, a freshman, became Avila's first Heart Triple Jump Champion back on May 6th, extending his streak to six straight Triple Jump victories to start his career, which extended his own program record. Barnes is also the first Eagle to qualify for the NAIA National Championships in both the indoor and outdoor season, and he also joined Kayvona Bragg as the only current Eagles to compete in the outdoor championships.

At the NAIA Outdoor Championships, Barnes earned a 13th place finish, which was good for second-best by a freshman in the entire country.
