Columbia College runner named women’s athlete of the week

COLUMBIA — Junior Lindsey Martin was named the American Midwest Conference indoor track athlete of the week on Tuesday after placing third at the 800-meter race at the Jayhawk Classic.

She ran a time of 2:21, a personal record, at the event hosted by the University of Kansas. The Cougars mid-distance specialist missed the national qualifying time by one second.

Martin also ran the mile race in 5:01, another personal best, which is good enough to qualify for NAIA national championships.
