WLANUT CREEK, Calif. -- Washington State University senior Blessing Ufodiama (Long Beach, Calif.) was named the Pac-10 female field athlete of the week after her fourth place finish in the invitational triple jump at the Mt. SAC Relays Sunday.
Ufodiama recorded the longest leap in school history, 43-feet, 5 1/4 inches with a 2.4 mps wind. This leap is the seventh best nationally this season for collegiate women. Because it is a wind-aided mark, it is not considered the school record mark, but still the longest in school history.
