Devia Brown was the top choice for National Athlete of the Week after she posted a best throw of 16.05m (52-8) to win the shot put at the Willie Williams Classic over the weekend.
The standout sophomore, who already ranks second in the event all-time in NJCAA history, will have another performance in the all-time top-10 as the showing ranks in a tie for the eight-best performance. The effort was also the fifth-best across all collegiate levels (including NCAAs) this past week.
To go with the win in the shot put, Brown also won the discus and hammer events at the meet.
Brown is the fifth athlete overall and the third female to earn a National Athlete of the Week honor in program history.
