King Fisher Society Student-Athlete of the Week - Thomas Sensing
Jan. 29, 2010
WINSTON-SALEM, NC - Wake Forest senior Thomas Sensing has been named the King Fisher Society Student-Athlete of the Week.
The award, sponsored by the King Fisher Society, seeks to honor a student-athlete who has excelled both on and off the field as a Demon Deacon.
Sensing is a senior leader on the Wake Forest men's track & field team. He has had a solid start to the year so far, recording a season-best toss of 52-00.00 in the shot put at the Hokie Invitational on Jan. 23.
He is coming off a junior year which saw him compete at the NCAA Outdoor Championships for the first time in his career. Sensing set the school-record in the javelin on his way to a second-place finish at last year's ACC Championship. He qualified for the NCAA East Regionals in not only the javelin, but also the shot put and discus. His fifth-place finish in the javelin at the regionals was good enough to earn him a trip to the NCAA Championships.
Off the track, the Franklin, Tenn. native will graduate from Wake Forest in May with a degree in Health and Exercise Science. He is also heavily involved in the Student-Athlete Advisory Committee and earned the 2008-09 ACC Male Sportsmanship Award, which was presented to the student-athlete who best exemplifies sportsmanship.
