Denton (2/16/05) - North Texas sprinter Osaze Aghedo was named the Sun Belt Conference's Women's Track Performer of the Week for her record-breaking run at the Tyson Invitational.
The senior ran a 7.57 in the 60-meter dash, eclipsing the all-time school and conference records.
Aghedo is the third woman on the Mean Green track team to topple a school record this season. Junior Deidra Wesley and senior Jessica Henderson set the all-time marks in the pentathlon and 20-pound weight throw respectively.
One of the fastest sprinters on the team, Aghedo holds the year's fastest time in not only the 60-meter dash, but also in the 55-meters and is a member of the 4x400 relay team as well.
Aghedo and the Mean Green will be in action this weekend at the Sooner Indoor meet in Norman, Okla.
