Lowry Earns MVC Track Athlete of the Week


    Junior long-distance runner Anna Lowry was recognized by the Missouri Valley Conference as the female track athlete of the week.

    Lowry smashed her fourth program record during the indoor season, including two at the Marshall Invitational last weekend. She broke her own record in the 5,000-meter run, earning second place at a 17:26.92 clip.

    Lowry followed that up by picking up a second-place finish in the mile run at 5:02.10, almost eight seconds faster than the previous record.

    Next up for the Purple Aces is the IU Hoosier Hills Open on Feb. 14 in Bloomington, Ind.
