Antoinette Cobb Makes it Three in a Row

April 14, 2010

DENVER - Louisiana Tech's Antoinette Cobb was honored by the Western Athletic Conference office Wednesday, receiving the women's Track Athlete of the Week award for the third consecutive week.

Cobb, a senior from Weyanoke, La. (West Feliciana HS), won both the 100-meter and 200-meter dashes at the Ole Miss Invitational on Saturday. Cobb's career-best time of 11.84 seconds in the 100m dash ranks third in the WAC. In the 200m, Cobb ran 24.10 seconds which ranks second in the WAC this season. In addition to her standout performance on her own, Cobb ran the opening leg of the 4x100m relay that finished second only to SEC power Ole Miss with a time of 46.10, a mark that is 0.44 seconds faster than the fastest non-LA Tech time in the WAC this season.

This marks Cobb's fifth such honor this year and her third of the outdoor season.

The Louisiana Tech track and field program is preparing to head to Baton Rouge, La. this weekend where they will compete in the LSU Alumni Gold track meet.
