The highest flier in the NCAA this season, and one of the highest in history, Olivia Gruver was named National Women's Field Athlete of the Year today by the U.S. Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association.
Washington senior All-American Mick Stanovsek has won one of the most prestigious honors handed out by the NCAA, as he is the first Husky in any sport to win the Elite 90 award, for the 2020 indoor track and field season.
After a record-breaking indoor season, senior Olivia Gruver has been named the West Region Women's Field Athlete of the Year by the U.S. Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association. Not only that, but Associate Head Coach Toby Stevenson earned Women's Assistant Coach of the Year.
The fields are set for the NCAA Indoor Championships, hosted next Friday and Saturday, March 13-14, at the Albuquerque Convention Center in Albuquerque, New Mexico.
Fresh off the team's best MPSF Championship finish in 15 years, the Husky women's track and field squad climbed to a season-high No. 7 national ranking in the USTFCCCA Rating Index.
Led by a sweep of the men's and women's 3k titles, the Husky track and field squads each had their best finish at the MPSF Championships in over a dozen years.
