Constance Ezugha Named ASU Female Athlete of the Week
Feb. 17, 2010
Women's track and field jumper Constance Ezugha has been named ASU's Female Athlete of the Week for the week ending February 20th. Her solid performance in the long-jump has placed her 8th overall (a jump of 6.26m) on ASU's all-time list. She passed last week's athlete of the week winner, Christabel Nettey, who now sits with the ninth best jump. The Sun Devils will send several athletes to Flagstaff once again next week as they will compete in the NAU Tune-up on Friday, February 19. One day later, the Sun Devil program will play host to the Diablo Relays at Sun Angel Stadium, which is an all-comers meet.
Ezugha won the long jump at the NAU Invitational in Flagstaff on Saturday with a mark of 6.26m (20-06.50), which placed her eighth on the school's all-time list and 13th in the NCAA so far this year. Her mark, which provisionally qualified her for the NCAA Indoor Championships next month, is the best in the nation among freshmen and makes her one of only two rookies to record a national qualifying mark (the other is her Sun Devil teammate, Christabel Nettey).
