Danbury, CT| Senior Brandon Linbrunner and junior Jennifer Holownia collected their second Athlete of the Week nods on Wednesday afternoon when the Eastern College Athletic Conference (ECAC) named the pair D-III Metro Track Athlete and Field Athlete of the Week, respectively.
The duo earned New Jersey Athletic Conference (NJAC) Track and Field Athletes of the Week for their efforts at Friday's Wagner College Invitational on Monday evening.
Linbrunner earned his first-ever NJAC Indoor Track Athlete of the Week honor after competing in the 200 meters, clocking a time of 23.66 which is just four-tenths of a second off of the St. Joseph's program record. He finished 24th in a field of 60 competitors that included athletes from across all three NCAA divisions and was the top NCAA Division III finisher in the race.
Holownia picked up her first-ever NJAC Indoor Field Athlete of the Week award competing in the long jump, hitting a mark of 4.87 meters to place 18th out of 43 competitors in the meet. The field included athletes from across all three NCAA divisions, and her mark was the best by an NCAA Division III athlete in the meet. Holownia owns the ninth-best jump in the conference this season after hitting 4.95m at the Bill Ward meet in December.
