Athlete of the Week
Shelaine Larson, Ohio State
SR, Ventura, Calif./Buena
Larson capped off her home indoor career with a personal best of 20.19 meters to claim the weight throw title at the Scarlet and Gray Invitational over the weekend. The senior also bettered the NCAA provisional qualifying standard of 18.50 meters and currently holds the 12th-best throw in the nation.
This is Larson's first weekly accolade of her career and the first for a Buckeye since Keturah Lofton earned a share of the award on Feb. 24, 2004.
