    INDIANAPOLIS - Junior Seyi Ogunleye was named the Horizon League Indoor Field Athlete of the Week for the period of Jan. 7-13.  The award serves as the first career weekly accolade for Ogunleye and the first for the Flames’ track program this season.

    "Seyi turned in a top notch performance in the triple jump," said head coach Jim Knoedel.

    Ogunleye placed first out of three competitors in the triple jump.  He recorded a leap of 13.94 meters, beating his nearest opponent by approximately half of a meter.  

    Ogunleye and the Flames continue action at the Dick Pond-Lewis Invitational and UWM Triangular on Friday, Jan. 17.
