Iskakova track athlete of week


Texas State junior transfer Asiya Iskakova was named Southland Conference Female Outdoor Track and Field Athlete of the Week announced Wednesday by the league office.

Iskakova is the second straight Texas State athlete to earn the honor this season. Teammate Iris Darrington took home the accolade last week.

Iskakova captured two top five finishes at the 82nd Clyde Littlefield Texas Relays. Iskakova had a jump of 1.70 meters (5 feet, 7 inches) in the high jump to take home the bronze at the relays. She also placed fourth in the triple jump with an NCAA Regional-qualifying leap of 12.63 meters (41-01.25). Her jump improves her SLC leader board mark as she keeps her No. 1 spot for another week.
