Etienne Named Big Ten Athlete of the Week

December 13, 2017

Etienne Indiana

After his record-breaking performance in Indiana University’s Hoosier Open on Saturday, Jyles Etienne ’17 was named the Big Ten Conference Field Athlete of the Week this afternoon. He is Indiana’s first field athlete to earn the honor since Dylan Anderson in 2014.

In his first meet for the Hoosiers, the former Bear cleared a personal best height of 7′ 3″ to win the event. Additionally, the height:

  • Placed him at #2 in the U.S. (Leader: 7′ 4.25″)
  • Is tied for the 4th highest jump in Indiana indoor history
  • Set a new meet record
  • Would have been the 5th place jump at last year’s NCAA Championships

Jyles and the Hoosiers are back in action on January 6th in a dual meet vs. Tennessee at home in Bloomington.
