EASTON, Pa. – Lafayette senior Rachel Pena was named Patriot League Female Field Athlete of the Week, the league announced Tuesday. The senior won the shot put and the weight throw in the Leopards dual meet at Lehigh over the weekend.

Pena threw Patriot League season bests in both the shot put and weight throw at Lehigh on Saturday afternoon. Her 13.39 meter toss in the shot put was just short of ECAC qualification. In the weight throw, however, Pena shattered the ECAC qualifier distance and set the Rauch Fieldhouse facility record posting a throw of 18.16 meters.
