After a record-setting performance at the TCU Horned Frog Invitational, SMU’s Stephanie Kalu was named the indoor Track & Field Female Athlete of the Week, by the American Athletic

Conference Tuesday.

 

It is the third time Kalu has won such an award in her career.

“I am real proud of her,” Director of Track & Field Dave Wollman said. “Any time that you can win an award like this, it’s a good thing.

“I’m glad we got to go back to work just one week after the NCAA’s, our main goal right now is to continue training and getting stronger for the conference outdoor that is just over a month away.”

Kalu turned in a time of 11.15 seconds in the 100-meter dash to take first place- breaking her own SMU record and the AAC record.

One record wasn’t enough for Kalu, as her time of 23.21 seconds in the 200-meter dash set a personal-best time, broke the SMU record and ranks first in the AAC.

Kalu and the Mustangs are back in action this week on Wednesday as they travel to Austin, Texas to compete at the Texas Relays.

The relays will conclude on Saturday.
