More Honors For Women

Gayle Hunter and Bridget Franek were named Big Ten Athletes of the Week for their exploits at the Penn State National Meet this past weekend.

Gayle won the Pentathlon with 4236 points, more than a hundred points higher than her previous school record! This entailed numerous PR's and NCAA qualifying marks in the individual events.

Bridget Franek set a school record of 9:10.04 in the 3000 meters, breaking a more than 10 year-old record, also qualifying for the NCAA meet. This was the third fastest 3000 run so far this year.

  1. The record was 24 years old. 3 Years older than Bridget herself.

  2. I stand corrected! Although pointing out errors is usually Malmo's job. (Oh to be 21 again...)


Thanks for commenting. Keep up the good work! (Try to mention others to encourage them to comment too!)
