Nwaba Nabs Third Consecutive Big West Athlete of the Week Honors
IRIVNE, Calif.-- Barbara Nwaba has been on a roll lately and it looks like she isn't stopping anytime soon. The senior nabbed her third consecutive Big West Athlete of the Week honors for her performance this past weekend at the Cal Poly Dual meet.
Nwaba had triple victories in three events, the javelin (129-6.5), 100m hurdles (13.81, wind-aided) and the high jump event where she cleared 5-11.5. Both her javelin and high jump marks were good enough to rank top five on the Gauchos all-time lists.
While her marks this weekend were impressive, Nwaba's lifetime bests rank even higher on the all-time list. Nwaba's javelin mark is currently ranked second at 141-7 and third in the high jump at 6-0.
