CORAL GABLES, Fla. – Junior Russell Robinson earned ACC Co-Field Performer of the Week, the conference announced Tuesday.

His jump tallied the new school record, besting his own previous mark of 16.23 meters (53-3) set earlier this season at the Hurricane Collegiate Invitational.

The Canes return to action on Apr. 23 in Baton Rouge, La., at the LSU Alumni Gold.
