Ian Jarman was recently named the University of Cincinnati’s mens track and field team’s Most Outstanding Athlete of the 2007 season.
Jarman, a graduate of Felicity High School, was a Division III state qualifier and a Southern Buckeye Conference National Division all-star while a member of the Cardinal varsity squad coached by Don Gaffney.
He was also a letterman in basketball.
The son of Paul and Mary Ann Jarman finished first in several of the Bearcats’ meets. His collegiate best throws have been 142-feet, 3-inches in the discus, 46-4 3/4 in the shot put, and 131-11 in the javelin.
Jarman, a sophomore, qualified for the NCAA Regional meet in the hammer throw. This took place in Columbia, Mo.
Last year he set a new record for a UC freshman in the hammer throw and earned the Freshman Athlete of the Year award. He now has a discus throw of 195-5 to his credit and this is the second-best throw ever for anyone in UC men's track and field history.
Bill Schnier, the Red and Black's head men's track and field coach, said, "This conscientious and studious Bearcat serves as a model for all."
Jarman is studying in the fields of biology and chemistry and has achieved a berth on the Dean's List.
