YORK, Pa. – For the third-straight week, sophomore Meghan McGowan was named the Capital Athletic Conference Field Athlete of the Week, the league announced on Tuesday.
After setting the program record in the high jump on April 11, it only took a week for McGowan to best her own record by a quarter of an inch with a 5' 8" leap in the New Captains Classic at Christopher Newport University on Saturday.
The height moved the Odenton, Maryland native into a tie for first in the country, while keeping a hold on the No. 1 spot in the conference.
McGowan and the Sea Gulls will be back in competition on Thursday, April 23 for the first day of the Penn Relays at the University of Pennsylvania; the start time for the three-day event is to be announced.
