Stanfield Garners Weekly Sun Belt Conference Honors

DENTON, Texas (4/29/08) For the fourth time in her career, Brandi Stanfield has been honored as the Sun Belt Conference Women’s Field Athlete of the Week.


It is the third time in four weeks that an athlete from the North Texas women’s track and field team has garnered the weekly honor.


Stanfield, a junior from Austin, Texas, tallied a season-best leap of 20-04.25 to take home top honors in the women’s long jump at the Mean Green Twilight Invitational. Stanfield, who had already regionally qualified in the long jump, improved her previous qualifying mark by five inches.


The Mean Green has tallied NCAA Midwest Regional qualifying marks in ten different events this season, including two by Stanfield in both the long and triple jump.


The University of North Texas track and field team will next be in action, Saturday at the UTA Open in Arlington.
