King’s College freshman Jill Korgeski was named the Middle Atlantic Conference women’s outdoor track and field “Field Athlete of the Week” the conference office announced on Monday. Korgeski earns King’s first-ever conference outdoor track and field honors in the program’s inaugural season.
Korgeski, who was named the indoor track and field “Field Athlete of the Week” three times, won the shot put at the All-American Invitational at East Stroudsburg on Saturday with a meet record throw of 13.47 meters. Her mark currently is the best in the conference and region this season and ranked 11th in the nation. On Saturday her throw was better than the 50 other Division II, Division III, Community College, and Unattached athletes competing at the Invitational.
Korgeski will look to improve her mark when King’s competes in the MAC Outdoor Track and Field Championships at Alvernia University from May 5 to 7.
