Official BIG EAST Release

NEW YORK – Freshman Monique Felix was named BIG EAST Field Athlete of the Week for the second time this season after setting her third freshman record of the year, the league office announced on Tuesday.

Felix leapt to a personal-best and an MU freshman record in the triple jump with a distance of 11.99 meters (39 feet, 4 inches) to win at the GVSU Big Meet on Friday. It was the fourth-longest jump all-time at MU and set a BIG EAST best mark of the season.

Her performance in the triple jump marked her third event in which she has set a freshman standard, including the 60-meter hurdles (9.05 seconds) and pentathlon where she scored 3,471 points at Northern Iowa earlier this season.

Felix claimed her first weekly honor following the team’s season opener at Notre Dame on Dec. 4.

The Golden Eagles will compete at the Red & White Open at UW-Madison on Friday, Feb. 19, which will be the team’s final tune-up before the BIG EAST Indoor Championships (Feb. 26-27) in Ocean Breeze, N.Y.
