FRISCO – After taking the triple jump title in College Station over the weekend, junior Tristyn Allen has been named the Southland Conference Women’s Indoor Athlete of the Week in an announcement by league officials on Wednesday.
Allen took first place in the triple jump at the Ted Nelson Invitational with a distance of 41-7.75, a mark that currently ranks her at No. 10 in the nation and helped the Bearkats to a top overall team finish among the 13 competing women’s teams.
The reigning indoor and outdoor conference champion in the triple jump, Allen’s leap was more than two feet further than her closest competitor.
