Golden1/ Student-Athlete of the Week

April 24, 2006

Kylie McCuen was named the Golden1/ Student-Athlete of the Week Monday after her record-breaking, second-place performance in the 200m at the Oregon Invitational this past weekend. McCuen, a senior from Brea Olinda, unofficially broke the UCSB record and will await verification due to high winds at Hayward Field in Oregon. If her time of 23.79 does not stand, McCuen shouldn't be too disappointed though. Her 23.88 time recorded in 2005 is the record in question.

McCuen also finished sixth in the 400m with a time of 56.42, just ahead of her teammates Kerry Gamble (11th) and Elise Geiger (13th). McCuen and the Gauchos return to the track this weekend when they will host Cal Poly in a dual meet.
