Prude takes home A-Sun honor in back-to-back weeks

Wednesday, February 05, 2014

Lipscomb's Gemikal Prude and Kennesaw State’s Andre Dorsey shared the Atlantic Sun Field Athlete of the Week honors after both jumped to a height of 2.20 meters in the high jump, which ranks fifth in the nation. 

They are both tied for first in the A-Sun in the event.

This is the second week in a row that Prude, a sophomore from Melbourne, Fla., has received A-Sun Athlete of the Week in field events. It is his third field performer of the week award in his career.

His 2.20 meters high jump Saturday at the TSU Invitational broke his own school record.  Prude and the rest of the field athletes helped boost the Bisons to second place as a team at TSU.
