Jon Hart has won the weight throw at both of Liberty's home indoor track meets this season.

Senior Jon Hart is the second Liberty thrower to earn Eastern College Athletic Conference (ECAC) Division I Men's Field Athlete of the Week honors this season, after finishing first in the weight throw and second in the shot put at Saturday's On Track Open.

Hart (Wyomissing, Pa.), tied for 13th on the national performance list in the weight throw, won his indoor specialty for the second time this year, reaching 63-7.75. He also made a successful season debut in the shot put. Hart's 53-1.75 heave placed second and qualified him for the IC4A Indoor Championships.

Senior Clendon Henderson (Meadow, Texas) previously won the ECAC Division I Men's Field Athlete of the Week distinction on Jan. 17. Hart and Henderson hold down the top two spots on the Big South Conference performance list in both the weight throw and the shot put.

Hart and a number of Liberty athletes will travel to Penn State, where Hart spent his sophomore year, for Friday and Saturday's Sykes-Sabock Challenge Cup. Other Flames and Lady Flames will compete in the VMI Winter Relays on Saturday.
