Berry Named SEC Freshman of the Week

Tennessee pole vaulter Joseph Berry has been named SEC Male Freshman of the Week by the SEC, the conference office announced Tuesday.

Berry won the pole vault and tied the facility record at the Tiger Track Classic in Auburn, Ala., last weekend. The Horsham, Pa., native cleared a regional-qualifying and season-best height of 16-6 3/4 to match Auburn???s Mark Johnson for the highest clearance ever at Hutsell-Rosen Track, which will host the SEC?Outdoor Championships in May. Berry???s clearance is currently tied for third in the SEC this season and is tied for the top freshman mark in the conference.

Berry and the rest of the third-ranked Vols compete in front of the home crowd this weekend at the 42nd Sea Ray Relays.
