Andrade Named ACC Field Performer of the Week

CORAL GABLES, Fla. – Graduate student Decio Andrade was named ACC Field Performer of the Week, the conference announced Tuesday.

This is the first such honor of his career. He is the second straight Hurricane to earn the award after teammate Russell Robinson garnered the accolade a week ago.

Andrade posted the NCAA-leading hammer throw mark of 71.76 meters last Saturday to win the Hurricane Collegiate Invitational. The Camacha, Portugal, native set a program record in the process, besting the previous mark of 71.07 meters set by Kevin Arreaga in 2019.

Miami returns to action on Friday and Saturday with the Florida Relays in Gainesville, Fla.
