LANCASTER, Pa. – After a record-breaking performance at the David Hemery Valentine Invitational over the weekend, Ursinus College junior Sophia Simoes was selected as the Centennial Conference women's field athlete of the week.
Simoes uncorked the top weight throw mark in the conference at the meet hosted by Boston University. Her throw of 42'-9" (13.03m) was good for a new indoor program record, surpassing the previous mark set last year by teammate Mikaela Bordonaro. Simoes is a full foot ahead of the next closest mark on the performance list.
Simoes also ranks sixth on the CC performance list with a top mark of 35-6.75.
