Official BIG EAST Release

NEW YORK – Following an impressive freshman debut, Marquette University’s Monique Felix has been awarded BIG EAST Conference Field Athlete of the Week honors, the league office announced today, Dec. 8.

At Marquette’s season opener at the Blue & Gold Invitational hosted by Notre Dame last Friday, Felix won the triple jump in her first-ever event. The Sheboygan, Wisconsin native set a personal best with a leap of 11.73 meters (38 feet, 5.5 inches), which was the fifth-best mark all-time at Marquette.

She competed in two events on the track as well, racing to sixth place and setting a freshman record in the 60-meter hurdles with a time of 9.07 seconds, and running the second leg on the 4x400-meter relay team that took second place in a time of 3:54.84.

The Golden Eagles will return to the track Saturday, Jan. 23, when they travel across town to take part in the UW-Milwaukee Panther Quad.
