LOS ANGELES – UCLA junior All-American Kylie Price was named the Pac-12 Female Field Athlete of the Week, the conference office announced Tuesday.
In her first action on the long jump runway this outdoor season Price soared to a mark of 20-9 this past weekend to win the event at the Battle on the Bayou in Baton Rouge, La. The jump is the fifth best in Division I this season.
Price becomes the second Bruin to earn a weekly honor this outdoor campaign as Nick Hartle opened the season by being named the Pac-12 Male Track Athlete of the Week.
UCLA will host the Rafer Johnson/Jackie Joyner-Kersee Invitational on Saturday, April 12 at Drake Stadium. The Bruins will welcome TCU and BYU in what will be the second home meet of the season.
