LANCASTER, Pa. – Franklin & Marshall's Alyssa Ward was once again named the Centennial Conference (CC) Field Athlete of the Week, marking the second time in as many weeks that she earned the award. The honor, announced by the league office on Monday, is the second of the season for Ward and the third of the season for the Diplomats as a team.
Ward garnered the recognition after posting a pair of third-place finishes in the jumps at the Villanova Open on Friday evening. In the long jump, she posted a distance of 16'-11.25" to finish in third place, before covering 36'-0" in the triple jump to again reach the podium.
F&M returns to action on Sunday, heading to the Deschriver Invitational, hosted by East Stroudsburg University.
