Harrisburg Native Bottomley Named NAIA Field Athlete Of The Week

For the second time this season, Central Methodist senior thrower Taylor Bottomley has been recognized as the NAIA National Field Athlete of the Week. The native of Harrisburg shined at the Margaret Simmons Invite this past week in Murray, Kentucky. Bottomley hit the ‘A’ standard in three different events including the discus, hammer, and shot put. He posted first-place finishes in all three events and broke the school record in both the hammer and shot put with throws of 60.40 and 17.35 meters respectively.

Bottomley and the Eagles will host the CMU Invite Friday and Saturday at Davis Field.
