Sophomore track and field athlete Chris Carrington had a strong month, picking up the George Mason Student-Athlete of the Month and CAA Player of the Week award.

This is Carrington’s first Student-Athlete of the Month award.

He finished sixth in the 800 meters at the NCAA Indoor Track and Field Championships with a time of 1:50.03. He posted the fourth-best time in the nation with a time of 1:47.30 in the 800 meters during the indoor season, making him eligible for the NCAA Championships.

Carrington became the first individual All-American since 2007 when Ryan McCoy was named an All-American in the triple jump. Carrington and the George Mason men’s 4×400 relay team finished 10th in the event.
