LAWRENCEVILLE, NJ – A pair of Rider University track & field student-athletes were named MAAC Field Performers of the Week, the league office today announced. Erik Adamcik (Hampton, NJ/North Hunterdon) earned the honor for the men, while Ashley Berry (Somerset, NJ/Franklin) took the women’s honor.

Adamcik won the pole vault at the Rutgers Invitational this past weekend, clearing an IC4A-qualifying height of 4.85 meters.

“Erik is competing consistently at a very high level right now,” said Rider Head Coach Bob Hamer. “He picked up on Friday right where he left off in December. I am very excited for him right now and I really believe that he has the ability to raise his performance up another notch. Erik has big goals this year and I really believe that he is on the right path to achieving them.”

Berry finished first in the shot put at the Rutgers Invitational at 13.59 meters as part of a 1-2 Broncs sweep in the event. 

“Ashley had a great freshman year and she is continuing that success this year,” said Hamer. “She is a big-time performer and we really rely on her to lead the young group of women throwers with her performance and experience. I am really excited about her performances this year and I am looking forward to many future successes this season. This is a well-deserved honor.
 
The Broncs return to action Friday, when they travel to Saint Thomas Aquinas at noon.
