Edison, NJ - Manhattan College's Tom Bechert and Andrea Nyback were named the Men's and Women's Indoor Track & Field Performers of the Week.

Bechert, a 6-3 junior from Munich, Germany, set a school record in the heptathlon with an NCAA-leading score of 5,819 points at the Brother Jasper Invitational last weekend.  Bechert shattered Rajne Svenssohn's old school mark of 5,503, set in 2004, and his score was nearly 600 points better than this season's previous NCAA-best, the 5,263 posted by Kent State's Dexter Shreve.  Bechert, who has also qualified for the IC4A Championships in three individual events, is a virtual lock to be one of the 16 heptathletes selected for the NCAA Indoor Championships in Fayetteville, Ark., on March 8-9.

Nyback, a 5-7 senior from Koping, Sweden, achieved an ECAC-qualifying score in the pentathlon at last weekend's Brother Jasper Invitational.  Needing to run the final event, the 800 meters, in 2:40 or better to reach the qualifying standard of 3,450 points, she posted a time of 2:39.30, giving her 3,457 points in the five-event competition.

The MAAC Men's and Women's Indoor Track and Field Championships will be held on Friday, February 15th at The Armory Track & Field Center in New York City.
