DENTON, Texas - North Texas track & field senior Sara Dietz was named the Sun Belt Conference Women's Track Athlete of the Week, the conference announced Wednesday.
Dietz went out and claimed the fourth best time in the NCAA West in her first meet of the outdoor season on Saturday at the Rice Victor Lopez Classic.
She took first in the event with a time of 2:08.97 and currently owns the fastest time in the SBC by almost four second over teammate Jo Adams.
The closest non-North Texas competitor sits third, almost six seconds behind Dietz's time. The senior's time also moved her to the second spot on the all-time school performance list.
Mean Green track & field will be back in action this week at the prestigious Texas Relays in Austin, Texas.
