MILWAUKEE – Junior Jerica Kotarak of the MSOE women's track & field team has been named the Northern Athletics Collegiate Conference Athlete of the Week for Feb. 5, the league office announced late Monday.
Kotarak won two events handily at the Red Hawk Invitational to lead the Raiders to second place in the team standings. She topped the field in the long jump by 19.5 inches with her leap of 18-4 1/2 and followed that up with a triple jump of 37-5 to take top honors. Her triple jump was a winner by 13.5 inches over second place.
Both jumps are first in the NACC so far this season.
MSOE is back in action Saturday at UW-Platteville Invitational.
