LakePoint, Ga. – For the first time in her career, Lipscomb senior Avery Franklin has been named the ASUN Outdoor Track Athlete of the Week, as announced by the league offices on Wednesday.
Franklin earned the award after a blazing performance in the 10,000m at the Bison Outdoor Classic over the weekend.
The Maryville, Tenn. Native grabbed an 11th place finish after clocking in at 35:55.78, a personal record by over a minute.
Her time currently ranks second in the ASUN in the event.
Franklin and the rest of the Bisons will hit the track again this weekend as Lipscomb travels to the Virginia Challenge and the Georgia Tech Invite.
The meets will provide more tune-up time prior to the ASUN Championships, which are less than a month away.
