MILWAUKEE – Sophomore Jerica Kotarak of the MSOE women's track & field team has been named the Northern Athletics Collegiate Conference Athlete of the Week for April 17, the league office announced late Tuesday.
Kotarak led a contingent of Raiders in action at the Benedictine Relays last weekend, winning the triple jump and taking second in the long jump. In the triple jump, she won by 5 3/4 inches with her leap of 37-8 and moved into 16th place nationally in the event. She took second in the long jump behind a Division I athlete from Milwaukee but was 11 inches ahead of third place at 18-5 1/4. That distance is 14th in the nation.
The Raiders are in action Saturday at the St. Norbert Invitational.
