Go Leopards!

Feb. 4, 2014

Easton, Pa. – The Patriot League has named Leopard’s senior Rachel Pena its Female Field Athlete of the Week for the second consecutive week. Pena and the Leopards took part in the Bison Open at Bucknell on Friday and Saturday.

Pena continued her domination by winning both the weight throw and shot put. She tossed the weight a distance of 18.11 meters (59’5”), shattering the ECAC qualifying mark of 16.00. In the shot put, her 13.23 meter (43’5”) mark bested the field, and came up just short of the ECAC qualifying mark.

The Leopards are in action again this weekend as they take part in the New Balance Invitational on Friday and Saturday, and the Covert Classic Saturday.
