INDIANAPOLIS - Ursuline College senior Bea Indurain has been named the Great Midwest Athletic Conference Women's Indoor Track and Field Athlete of the Week, the conference office announced Monday (Feb. 23) afternoon.
This is the second time this season that Indurain has received the honor. She also won the award on February 4, 2014.
Indurain was a standout at Friday (Feb. 20) night’s Greater Cleveland Championships and the Kent State University Tune-Up on Saturday (Feb. 21).
At the Greater Cleveland Championships, which were hosted by Baldwin Wallace University, Indurain set a school and fieldhouse record in the 55 meter hurdles when she won the race in 7.97 seconds. The Harrison Dillard Track record was 8.24 set by Baldwin Wallace's Melanie Winters earlier this year.
She also won the long jump with a leap of 5.21 meters.
On Saturday, Indurain shattered two more school records. She ran a 7.84 in the 60 meter dash prelims to best the school record previously owned by senior Keyana Roberts by a hundredth of a second. She later ran a 7.87 in the finals to win the event.
Indurain also won the 60 meter hurdles prelims with a school record time of 8.54, defeating the next closest competitor by .34. The time of 8.54 ranks her fifth in all of Division II this season. In the finals, her time of 8.62 was the best in the field.
The Arrows will be competing for the Great Midwest Athletic Conference title on Saturday (Feb. 28) at Kenyon College’s Toan Track.
