RICHMOND, Va. – VCU redshirt sophomore Chaneka Perry has been named the CAA Women's Field Athlete of the Week, the league announced on Tuesday.
This marks the first honor of the 2012 campaign for Perry, as well as for the VCU Track & Field programs.
The Newport News, Va., native garnered a third place finish in the triple jump at the Fred Hardy Invitational on Friday at University of Richmond. Perry jumped 12.11 meters, which earned her a spot at the ECAC Outdoor Championships later this spring. Perry's jump surpassed the 12.05 meter qualifying mark and is the best jump in the CAA so far this season.
The Rams are set to hit the road this weekend, traveling to Gainesville, Fla., for the Florida Relays.
