U-D’s Murfin Named National D-3 Field Athlete of the Year

The University of Dubuque’s Blaze Murfin has been named the NCAA Division Three Field Athlete of the Year by the U.S. Track and Field and Cross Country Coaches Association.

Murfin totaled 16 points at the NCAA meet after qualifying in all three throwing events. He won the shot put title with a mark of 61-1¼, which made him the 10th best performer in NCAA DIII history.
