Denton (02/09/05) - Deidra Wesley was named the Sun Belt Women's Field Performer of the Week for her record setting pentathlon at the JD Martin Invitational in Norman, Okla.
The junior set a school record of 3,679 points, which is just 21 points shy of qualifying for the NCAA meet.
Wesley set personal bests in the hurdles, shot put and 800-meter run to bring home the gold.
Not a stranger to the NCAA Regionals, Wesley has been a regional qualifier for the past two seasons in the high jump.
Wesley is the second North Texas athlete to be named field athlete of the week this season. Senior Jessica Henderson was named to the honor on January 25 for her record setting toss in the 20-pound weight throw at the OU Indoor Classic.
Wesley and the Mean Green track and field team will return to action this weekend at the Tyson Invitational in Fayetteville, Ark.
