    ST. LOUIS -- Saluki track and field jumper Dougie Palacious has been named the Missouri Valley Conference Men's Field Athlete of the Week, the conference announced Tuesday.

    Palacious won his third straight triple jump title of the outdoor season this past weekend at the Joey Haines Invitational at Southeast Missouri State with an MVC-best jump of 15.64m (51-03.75) -- a mark that currently ranks as the 15th-best triple jump in the country. Impressively, that mark is still six inches off his personal best set at the 2012 MVC Outdoor Championships. Palacious also finished third in the long jump at SEMO with a wind-aided leap of 7.36m (24-01.75), which is tied for 38th nationally and ranks second in the conference.
