Antoinette Cobb Records Second Consecutive WAC Track Athlete of the Week Honor

April 6, 2010

DENVER - Louisiana Tech's Antoinette Cobb was honored by the Western Athletic Conference Tuesday when the league office named her the WAC Track Athlete of the Week for the second consecutive week. Cobb reigned in the honor after running the fastest 100m hurdles time of any WAC athlete since 1999.

Cobb, a senior from Weyanoke, La. (West Feliciana HS), broke the Louisiana Tech school record in the 100-meter hurdles with a time of 13.22 seconds, finishing second at the Texas Relays last week. Cobb's second-place finish was the highest of any amateur/collegian athlete as she finished behind Lauren Smith, a former hurdler from Houston who currently runs professionally. With the mark of 13.22, Cobb is ranked eighth nationally and owns the fastest 100m hurdles time of any WAC athlete since 1999.

The honor is the fourth for Cobb this season and marks the third consecutive week a Lady Techster has won the award with Chasidee Lewis-Baker being honored by the WAC following the first week of outdoor competition.

The Lady Techsters return to action on April 10 when they travel to Oxford, Miss. for the Ole Miss Invitational.
