CHARLOTTE, NC (March 29, 2022) – Claflin University freshman Jocolbi Morgan continues to make a name for himself as he was honored as the Central Intercollegiate Athletic Association (CIAA) Food Lion Field Athlete of the Week, Tuesday afternoon. He brought home the honor after a great performance at the Weems Baskin hosted by the University of South Carolina.

It was in the men’s long jump that Morgan really stood out at the meet. He placed fourth in the event with a 23’8.75″ (7.23m) jump. The distance is the top mark in the CIAA and it is the second-best in the NCAA Division II Atlantic Region.

Morgan and the Panthers will return to action, Saturday, when the team heads to Central, South Carolina to take part in the Gotta Run Invite hosted by Southern Wesleyan University.
