JOHNSON CITY, Tenn. (Feb. 9, 2011) - Seniors Jarrod Burton (Bastian, Va.) and Jasmine Ingram (Fredrick, Md.) of the ETSU's track & field teams picked up their second Atlantic Sun Conference weekly awards of the season, announced the league office Wednesday.
 
"We are very pleased that that these two seniors are continuing to get recognized by the conference for their achievements this indoor season," said assistant coach Eli Sunquist. "Jasmine set two lifetime bests this past weekend, and her 400m time this past weekend was a whole second faster than what she ran at this time last year.  Her training is going very well, and she is looking great heading into conference.  Jarrod was the top collegiate thrower in both events this past weekend, and should take both throws next weekend at home as well.  Both athletes are extremely deserving of this recognition."
