Hoty takes third place at SEC Outdoor event

Perkins graduate Matt Hoty, who red-shirted last season at Tennessee after breaking his wrist in his senior season at Perkins, has rediscovered the magic formula at just the right time to match his SEC Indoor finish in the men’s shot put with a third place result outdoors.

The 6-3, 300-pounder unloaded a blast of 60 feet, 10 inches to improve his UT freshman outdoor record in the event and deliver his squad six points.

This year, he made the 2012 USTFCCCA Indoor All-America Second Team and was a member of the SEC All-Freshman Team. In Indoors, he qualified for the NCAA Indoor meet and finished 15th in the shot put with a mark of 59-10 1/2.
