Robert Morris senior Stephen Mitchell was named the Northeast Conference Indoor Field Athlete of the Week.

Appearing at the Penn State Relays, his first indoor meet since 2011, the Central Catholic High School graduate qualified for the IC4A/ECAC Championships in both the shot put and the 35-pound weight throw.

Mitchell finished with a toss of 15.88 meters (51'1.25") to claim bronze in the shot put, and his mark of 17.69 meters (57'8.50") in the weight throw earned fourth place.

On the NEC leaderboard, Mitchell ranks second in weight throw this season thanks to his performance at Penn State, trailing only Errol Jeffrey of Monmouth, who owns a season-best throw of 17.73 meters (58'2"). Mitchell ranks sixth in the shot put.
