CINCINNATI - Xavier University's Mercedes Oliver was tabbed All-BIG EAST Outdoor Track & Field after medaling in two events at the BIG EAST Championships last weekend.

Oliver earned a silver medal in the women's shot put after recording a mark of 14.10m, which fell just five centimeters short of gold. However, her toss broke Xavier's record in the event. The native of Cleveland added a third-place finish in the women's discuss, throwing 43.24m.

The Musketeers and Oliver are back in action on Friday, May 16 at the Cardinal Twilight in Louisville, Ky.
