After combining to win three events at the season-opening Big Ten/Southeastern Conference Challenge, Florida junior Beau Burroughs and freshman Terrell Wilks swept the menís Athlete of the Week honors, the conference office announced.

Burroughs bettered his indoor PR by more than three feet with a toss of 18.04m/59-2.25 in the shot put en route to collecting the first victory of his career last Saturday.

The only male runner to win multiple events at the Big Ten/SEC Challenge, Wilks finished first in both the 60m and 200m on his way to claiming SEC Male Runner of the Week and Male Freshman of the Week accolades.
