King earns second MIAC athlete of week honor in 2009

The honor was the second in 2009 for King, who was named the MIAC indoor field athlete of the week on February 9.

King hit an NCAA provisional shot put mark in his first outdoor meet of the season at the Hamline Invite on Saturday. King's put of 16.30 meters (53-5 3/4) not only hit the NCAA provisional distance but also ranks him first in the MIAC and it was the second-best throw in Division III this season.

He finished second in the event to an unattached competitor.
