TERRE HAUTE, IND. -- Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology senior Liz Evans (Bicknell/North Knox) earned her second United States Track and Field Coaches Association National Athlete of the Week award of the 2013 season on Monday.
Evans set a new NCAA Division III all-time record in the high jump with a leap of 5' 11 1/2" at Bellarmine University on Saturday.
Entering the weekend in a three-way tie with Middlebury’s Kristy Laramee of Middlebury and Maria Megnin of Hartwick on the all-time list at 5' 11 1/4", Evans cleared her Division III-record height on the final attempt after making her first four heights on five attempts.
Evans previously tied the record at the Rose-Hulman Early Bird Invitational in March.
Rose-Hulman returns to action with two meets this weekend. The Fightin' Engineers host an open meet on Friday and travel to the Indiana Division III Championships at Franklin on Saturday.
