After breaking the school record in the pole vault and being named back-to-back WHAC Field Performer of the Week, Curtis Bell (JR/Coleman, Michigan) added another accolade to his resume this afternoon. Bell was named the NAIA's National Field Athlete of the Week for his performance at the Grand Rapids Sports Hall of Fame Classic.
Bell cleared 16-7.25 to win the event and break the previous school record. His vault now ranks him first in the country as he enters the final two weeks of the regular season. Bell bettered 29 other nominees for the NAIA's highest weekly honor
