Evans Named Athlete of the Week by Hepstrack.com

Holds Fastest 200-Meter Time in League

NEW HAVEN, Conn. – Senior captain Marty Evans was named male athlete of the week by Hepstrack.com on Sunday. Evans won the 200-meter dash at Saturday's tri-meet with Dartmouth and Columbia with a blazing time of 21.87, the fastest in the Ivy League and no. 2 Yale all-time indoor. He also ran a 49.49 in the 400-meter dash, also among the top five in the league.

Evans has been a formidable force in the middle sprints, placing second in the 200-meter dash at outdoor Heptagonals last year and earning All-Ivy honors. Evans finished out the season by qualifying for the NCAA Regional Championships in the 200-meter dash with a personal best of 21.03.

Evans will next compete with the rest of the Bulldogs at the Boston University Terrier Invitational on Jan. 28.
