Today's Flames Minute: Thursday
Brought to you by Church Mutual Insurance, for this Thursday, February 13, 2020, I'm Nick Pierce.
Beginning today with tennis - Flames sophomore Josh Wilson is the ASUN Men's Player of the Week. Wilson had a come-from-behind three set win in singles against Virginia Tech on Sunday as the Flames downed the Hokies, 4-3. Meanwhile, Liberty's Kalani Soli is the ASUN Women's Tennis Player of the Week. The senior won two singles matches last weekend at FIU and Florida Atlantic.
And more ASUN honors – this time for track and field – Liberty senior Jovaine Atkinson is the Men's Track Athlete of the Week and senior Tanner Ealum is the Women's Track Athlete of the Week. Atkinson finished third in the 60 hurdles final at South Carolina, last Friday, while Ealum won the women's 800 at South Carolina, last Saturday.
Next up for Flames track and field – the sixth annual Darius Dixon Memorial Invitational will take place Friday and Saturday at the Liberty Indoor Track Complex. Admission to the events is free.
