For eight consecutive weeks the Sycamores have had at least one athlete named to the Missouri Valley Conference Athlete of the Week award. This week the league office announced that seniors Greggmar Swift and Mary Theisen, as well as sophomore Katie Wise were named MVC Athletes of the Week.
This was Swift’s seventh honor of the season, but first of the outdoor season. He won in the 110 Hurdles at the Bill Cornell Spring Classic.
Wise earned her sixth honor of the 2013-2014 season, but first of the outdoor season. Wise started off the 2014 outdoor season. Wise was able to win at the Bill Cornell Spring Classic Invitational in the 100 meter dash.
