Week's Achievements: Smith kept his strong season going Friday night against Ohio with a 9-1 major decision over Garret Garness. The win was Smith's fifth on the year and his first bonus point triumph in 2012-13. Week's Achievements: Sherrill continued her impressive sophomore campaign at the Illini Open, taking first place in the shot put with a personal best toss of 45-08.00 (13.92m) - her second shot put PR in as many meets this year. The sophomore from Fort Wayne, Ind., topped Illinois' Kristen Wilson by nearly six inches and Saint Louis' Hannah Kuenzel by almost three feet. The win was the second event title in Sherrill's career and the first indoor win.
