Walker's Pace: Theisen Selected West Region Field AOY
Monday, March 5, 2012
Brianne Theisen was named the West Region co-Women's Field Athlete of the Year, the USTFCCCA announced Monday.
Here is the summary from the USTFCCCA:
"Theisen, a senior from Humboldt, Saskatchewan, broke her own collegiate record in the pentathlon back in January, scoring 4,555 points. Theisen cleared 6-2 (1.88m) in the high jump portion of the pentathlon which ranks in a tie for second among all collegians in the event this year. At the MPSF Championships, Theisen performed in individual events, scoring 22 points with a victory in the 400 meters, a second-place in the 60 hurdles, and fifth-place showing in the long jump."
She shared the West honor with Arizona's record-setting high jumper Brigetta Barrett.
Theisen and the top-ranked Women of Oregon head to Boise, Idaho, this week to defend their back-to-back NCAA indoor titles.
