Dallas – Senior Lilian Koech has garnered Conference USA Female Track Athlete of the Week honors, the league announced Tuesday morning.

The distance runner competed in the women’s 800m and 1,500m at the 92nd Clyde Littlefield Texas Relays.

She opened the week of action in stellar fashion, clocking in a time of 2:05.42 in the 800m to take third overall. Koech’s time currently rates ninth nationally and first in C-USA.

The Eldoret, Kenya, native went on to race in the 1,500m in the final day of Texas Relays.

The senior crossed the finish line with a season-best time of 4:21.84, finishing second overall. Koech’s time in the 1,500m currently ranks first in the league.

The Miners will be back in action from April 12-13 at the Texas A&M Invitational in College Station, Texas.
