Xavier Charles and Taylor Deveaux Named JWU Athletics Wildcats of the Week

NORTH MIAMI, Fla. (April 1, 2019) – Men's track & field freshman Xavier Charles and women's track & field senior Taylor Deveaux have been named JWU Athletics Wildcats of the Week for the week ending March 31, the Athletic Department announced on Monday.

The Wildcats of the Week honor is a weekly award given to the top performing student-athlete among the 11 intercollegiate sports sponsored at JWU. Awarded to the top male and female student-athlete each week by the JWU Athletic Department, those named the Wildcat of the Week will become eligible to be named the Sergio's Player of the Month for the corresponding month. 

Charles, a freshman from Land O'Lakes, Florida, set a PR in the shot put, registering a mark of 7.49m at the Embry-Riddle Spikes Classic this past weekend. With his throw, Charles finished 16th in the meet. The first-year Wildcat shattered his previous top mark which her set at the Sharks Invitational Meet on March 12 (7.18m).

Deveaux, a senior from West Berlin, New Jersey, set the season mark in the Sun Conference in the Javelin with a throw of 29.70m at the Embry-Riddle Spikes Classic this past weekend. The throw was the third-longest of her career and surpassed the TSC Championship-qualifying mark that the native of West Berlin, New Jersey, set in her previous meet (Sharks Invitational Meet - March 12; 29.02m). With her season-best mark, Deveaux picked up eight points with a fourth-place finish in the Javelin for the Wildcats.
