Bell named American Male Field Athlete of the Week

USF's David Bell has been named American Athletic Conference Male Field Athlete of the Week following his record-breaking performance at the Samford Invitational last Friday.

The junior from Jacksonville, Fla., set a new school indoor record in the men's pole vault with an event-winning height of 17-5.00. Bell was previously second on USF's chart at 17-2.75 and topped the former school record of 17-3.50 set by David Akins in 2016.

Bell's stellar performance at the Samford Invitational was one of two school records set by USF while the Bulls finished with nine event wins and 22 top-five performances. USF will look to build more momentum at the American Athletic Conference Indoor Championships Feb. 23-24 at the Birmingham CrossPlex in Alabama.
