McKeag earns MIAC honor

McKeag hit the provisional qualifying mark in both the shot put and the weight throw on Friday night at Carleton.

The marks are the first two Pipers provos of the year.

In the shot put, McKeag won the event with a put of 51-1 (15.57 meters).

He then won the weight throw with a toss of 57-0 3/4 (17.39 meters).

This is McKeag's third MIAC field athlete of the week honor in his career. He twice won the award last spring during the outdoor track and field season.

The Pipers don't compete again until Saturday, February 5, at the Border Battle at UW-Superior.
