Pilling, a thrower on track and field team, will be a part of the CMU contingent competing the NCAA Mideast Regional this week. He will compete in the discus after placing sixth in that event at the 2007 Mid-American Conference Championships.
Pilling is a sophomore majoring in sport studies. He maintains a 3.14 grade-point average.
Each week, State Farm will recognize one male and one female student-athlete as its CMU Scholar-Athlete of the Week.
