For the second time this season, Blue Raider sophomore Agnes Abu was named the Conference USA Female Track Athlete of the Week, the league office announced Tuesday afternoon.

Abu clocked a personal-best time of 2:04.72 in the 800-meter run over the weekend at the Camel City Invitational in Winston-Salem, N.C. to finish as the second-place collegian.

The Ghana native’s time ranks No. 10 in the country and second in C-USA, only behind teammate Abike Egbeniyi (2:04.47).

The honor marks the third time in Abu’s career to gain Athlete of the Week accolades. The award is also the fifth time a Blue Raider has garnered a weekly honor this season.

Abu shares this week’s honor with Rice’s Katie Jensen.

The Blue Raiders return to action this weekend for a split meet, with MT athletes competing at Vanderbilt’s Music City Challenge and Iowa State’s ISU Classic.
