Price named to Bowerman watch list
Senior thrower DeAnna Price can add another accolade to her collection.
Price was named to the Bowerman Watch List by the United States Track and Field and Cross Country Coaches Association on Wednesday.
The Bowerman Award is given to the most outstanding male and female collegiate track and field athlete. Price is one of 10 finalists for the women’s award.
Friday, Price broke the American collegiate record in the hammer throw with a 238-foot, 4-inch throw. This throw was the seventh best in the world this year, and surpasses the Olympic “A” standard.
The six-time Missouri Valley Conference Women’s Field Athlete of the Week is one of two candidates on the 10-women list to be from a non-power five conference.
Former Saluki thrower Raven Saunders, who now competes at Mississippi, was listed as a contender receiving votes.
