The national accolade marks the third time this season a member of the women’s team has won the weekly honor. Senior Avi’Tal Wilson-Perteete was recognized on March 22 after breaking the 600m collegiate record and Charokee Young won the award on April 5 after clocking a world-leading 400m time.

It marks the second SEC Field Athlete of the Week honor won by Distin and the 11th time an Aggie has been recognized with a weekly accolade by the league this year.

Texas A&M takes a week off from competition before traveling to Oxford, Mississippi, to compete in the SEC Championships May 12-14.
