MILWAUKEE - Senior Jerica Kotarak has been selected as this week's Ian's Pizza Raider of the Week for February 25. 

Kotarak led the MSOE women's track and field team to a 3rd place finish at the NACC Championships on Saturday at Carthage College.  Kotarak won both horizontal jumps (she is undefeated at NACC championships in both events in her career) and added a 4th place finish with a personal best in the 55-meter dash.

In her specialties, Kotarak was no surprise.  She won the long jump with a distance of 5.51m (18'1").  In the triple jump she landed at 11.27m out jumping the next closest at 10.95 meters.

A pleasant surprise was in the 55-meter dash.  She qualified with a time of 8.2 and then ran a 7.54 to get into the finals.  There she sprinted to a 7.6 to secure 4th place.

Her 25 points earned her NACC Athlete of the Meet (past 2 years) and her 20 points in the field events earned her NACC Field Athlete of the Meet.
