NASHVILLE, Tenn. – On the heels of shattering the school record for the Mile, Belmont Track and Field sophomore Hannah Wittman (Lindenhurst, Ill.) was named the OVC Female Track Athlete of the Week, as announced by the league on Wednesday. It is the first time in her career she has received the honor.
The Lindenhurst, Ill., native placed fifth in the Mile at the Southern Miss Cupid Classic last weekend with a time of 4:55.94. The time broke the BU record which had stood since 2007 and a personal best for Wittman. She also now owns the top spot on the OVC best list by nearly four seconds.
Belmont Track and Field return to action February 28-March 1 at the OVC Indoor Championships, hosted by Tennessee State.
