Scots' Lumzy Named MWC Performer of Week
POSTED 12:15 p-m 2/24/10 Monmouth College thrower Peyton Lumzy is peaking at the right time and earned his second Midwest Conference Performer of the Week award in track and field for men's field events.

Lumzy, a native of Dixon, uncorked a career-best weight throw at last Saturday's Wartburg Invitational. The junior's winning 55'9-3/4" toss improved his conference-leading margin by nearly three feet and provisionally qualified him for next month's NCAA Championships. He also posted a shot put of 48'9" to place second in that event.

The environmental science major was also named the conference's Performer of the Week in January.
