Arizona redshirt senior Nick Ross was named the Pac-12 field athlete of the week Tuesday.
The jumper set a new school record on Saturday in the men’s high jump competition with his clearance of 7-6.5 (2.30m) at Arizona’s Double Dual against ASU and NAU.
This is the second time this season Ross has been honored. Previously, he was named the Pac-12 field athlete of the week on April 15.
Ross broke James Frazier’s school record of 7-6 (2.29m). Frazier had held the record since May 10, 1980. Ross’ jump ranks No. 1 in the country and No. 5 in the world this year.
