Athlete of the Week
Demi Omole, Wisconsin
SO, Whitefish Bay, Wis./Domincan
Omole receives the Conference nod as Athlete of the Week after posting three first-place finishes for the Badgers at the Wisconsin Twilight on Saturday. In the final tune-up before this weekend's Big Ten Outdoor Track & Field Championships, the sophomore started the day by anchoring the 4x100-meter squad that won in an NCAA Regional qualifying time of 40.15. The Whitefish Bay, Wis., native also claimed the 100-meter dash title in 10.39 and won the 200 meters in a personal best and regional time of 20.77. Omole's 200 meter time is the fourth fastest in UW school history and is the top time in the Big Ten this season.
This is Omole's second career weekly award as he was also honored during the indoor season on Feb. 1, 2005.
