Chastity Stewart Earns C-USA Track Athlete Of The Week
It Marks The First-Ever C-USA Track Athlete Of The Week For North Texas
Senior Chastity Stewart collected her first-ever Conference USA women's track athlete of the week award.
DENTON – Thanks to a meet record and a first-place finish, senior Chastity Stewart earned her first career Conference USA Track Athlete of the Week honor, announced Tuesday by the league office.
The weekly award marks the first time a student-athlete has been recognized at North Texas in Track and Field since 2008.
Stewart broke the John Jacobs invitational 100-meter hurdles record with a career-best time of 13.24. Her performance is one of the fastest times in North Texas history and was one-second faster than Alysha Adam’s 13.25 time on June 25, 2011.
The Whitehouse, Texas native also took sixth in the 200-meter dash with a season-best time of 24.28. In her final event, she was part of the 4x100-meter relay team that finished second only finishing behind meet host Oklahoma in 45.86.
Stewart, who rested during the indoor season, has returned to greatness in the outdoor season earning five first-place finishes (100m hurdles, 400m hurdles, 4x100m relay) and has finished top 15 or better in every event.
The Mean Green will head to the Bobcat Classic hosted by Texas State April 30 for the final event before competing in the C-USA championships in Murfreesboro, Tenn.
