Kelechi Anyanwu - Women's Track and Field

March 26, 2007

BERKELEY - This week's Muscle Milk Student-Athlete of the Week honor is awarded to senior Kelechi Anyanwu who led the Golden Bear track and field teams at the Jim Click Shootout in Arizona. Anyanwu threw the discus a school record 185-11 (56.66 meters) to win the event and qualify for the NCAA West Regional. Her mark was one of 13 qualifying times or marks recorded by the Golden Bears at the Shootout. It broke the previous school record of 181-02 set by former star Sheni Russell.

Anyanwu also qualified for the NCAA West Regional in the shot put with her lifetime-best mark of 49-9.75 (15.18 meters) to earn a second-place tie in that event with teammate Missy Faubus.

The economics major was honorable mention Pac-10 All-Academic and MPSF Academic All-Conference in 2006. Her mother, Chinazam Anyanwu, also attended Cal.

The Golden Bear track and field teams will compete in the Stanford Invitational this Friday and Saturday, March 30-31, on the Farm.
