For the third time in three outdoor meets this season Weber State's Amber Henry was named the Big Sky Conference Women's Track Athlete of the Week. Henry received the honor after her record breaking performance last weekend.

Henry, a senior from Mountain View, Wyo., set a new Weber State school record winning the University Open 1500 meters at the Mt. Sac Relay's last Thursday in Walnut, Calif. She posted a time of 4 minutes, 16.07 seconds to win the race. The time also ranks as the fourth best in Big Sky history and is currently the seventh best in the nation this season.

Henry now ranks in the top 10 in the country in two events, including the steeplechase.

She has now been named Big Sky Athlete of the Week 14 times in her career in cross country and indoor and outdoor track and field.
