Czuth Named B1G Field Athlete of the Week

Nebraska sophomore Reka Czuth was named Big Ten Women’s Field Athlete of the Week on Wednesday, the conference office announced.

Czuth cleared 6-1 1/2 (1.87m) in the high jump at the Frank Sevigne Husker Invitational, a personal best that moved her into a tie for third on the all-time NU indoor chart. Czuth’s mark came one week after she set a PR of 6-0 1/2 (1.84m), her first-ever clearance over six feet. She is the Big Ten leader in the high jump and ranks tied for second in the nation.

Czuth also placed fifth in the long jump with a mark of 19-9 (6.02m) at the Frank Sevigne Husker Invitational.
