Jock Honored at Halftime of Men’s Basketball Game

During the break at the men’s basketball game on Saturday, UCI honored track star Charles Jock, who won the NCAA Championship in the 800 meters last year. Jock is UCI’s first individual NCAA champion in 34 years since Steve Scott (1,500 meters) and Mauricio Bardales (decathlon) won titles at the 1978 NCAA Division I Track & Field Championships.

“UCI has always treated me well, from the administration and classes, to on the track, so to be able to get this reception is awesome. I’m so thankful,” Jock said.
