NORTH DARTMOUTH, MA-Senior Robert Yarbough (Fall River, MA/Durfee HS) of the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth's track and field team has been honored by the Little East Conference.

Yarbough has been named LEC Men's Field Athlete of the Week.

At Saturday's UMass Dartmouth Invitational, Yarbough finished first in the hammer throw at 162 feet, nine inches and was sixth in the shot put at 41 feet, 1 1/2 inches, helping lead the Corsairs to a first place finish.

"Robert Yarbough had a nice all-around day in the throwing events on Saturday, capping his last home meet as a Corsair on our campus," said UMass Dartmouth Head Coach Steve Gardiner. "He has been a valuable leader of our team, and he is very deserving of this award."

The Corsairs will return to action when they visit the University of Massachusetts Saturday.
