Rogers Earns Pac-12 Weekly Honor
SAN FRANCISCO – California track & field junior Camryn Rogers has been named Pac-12 Women's Field Athlete of the Week as announced by the conference on Wednesday.
Rogers registered another standout performance in the hammer throw circle, going 73.09 meters (239-9) on her first throw of the competition at the West Coast Classic in Eugene, passing the Olympic standard of 72.50 meters. The lifetime best toss made Rogers the No. 3 performer all-time in NCAA history in the event and she currently sits eighth on the world leaders list.
A native of Richmond, British Columbia, Rogers is now just 4 feet, 8 inches off the NCAA record held by Arizona State's Maggie Ewen set in 2017 and 3 feet, 7 inches behind Northern Arizona's Brooke Andersen for No. 2 on the NCAA all-time list.
The reigning NCAA champion in the women's hammer throw, Rogers' new top mark set Saturday at Hayward Field broke her own school record that she has topped several times during her first three years as a Golden Bear. Her previous best was 71.73 meters (235-4), an improvement of nearly 4 1/2 feet.
This is the second time Rogers has collected a Pac-12 weekly honor this season after she earned Women's Field Athlete of the Week on April 7.
