William & Mary’s Jason Nwosu from Delsea wins shot, named Field MVP at CAA meet!!!!!!

Jason Nwosu, a William & Mary freshman from Delsea, was named Most Valuable Field Performer after winning one event and placing in two others at the Colonial Athletic Association Championships.

Nwosu threw 54-6 with the 16-pound ball and won the shot put Saturday by 4 ¾ inches over Brayden Hodgest of North Carolina AT&T, who threw 54-1 ¼. On Friday, he threw 156-10 for 6th in the hammer and 150-0 for 4th place in the discus.

Nwosu has PRs this year of 55-2 ¼ in the shot, 157-10 in the discus and 165-5 in the hammer. Indoors, he threw 53-1 ½ in the shot (No. 11 in school history) and 54-4 ¾ in the weight throw (No. 15 in school history).

He already ranks No. 7 in school history in the shot, No. 11 in the discus and No. 15 in the hammer, an event he never tried before March.

He’s closing in on the William & Mary freshman class shot record of 55-6 set 40 years ago by George Dippold at the 1983 William & Mary Invitational in Williamsburg, Va.

William and Mary has the best page of school records and performance lists I’ve ever seen. Great job!
