COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. - Wyoming’s Emelda Malm-Annan has been named the Mountain West Female Field Athlete of the Week, the conference office announced Tuesday. The weekly award is the first of her career.
Malm-Annan, a freshman from Elk Grove, Calif., made an impressive collegiate debut at last Friday’s Power Meet in Laramie, Wyo. She won the weight throw with a toss of 64-3 1/4, a mark that currently ranks first in the MW, seventh in the NCAA and sixth in Cowgirl history. Her throw also set a Wyoming freshman record, according to UW associate head coach Paul Barrett.
The Cowgirls and Cowboys return to action at the Air Force Collegiate Open on Jan. 8 in Colorado Springs, Colo.
