UTEP’s Bright Earns C-USA Field Athlete of the Week Recognition

Dallas – Freshman Chantoba Bright was named Conference USA Female Field Athlete of the Week, the league announced on Tuesday.

This is the field athlete’s first outdoor honor and her second C-USA Athlete of the Week recognition of her career.

Bright opened the outdoor season in stellar fashion, posting a personal-best leap of 6.30m in the long jump. The freshman not only won the event, but also earned the top mark in the nation.

Bright’s leap also rates first in the league. Her wind-legal mark of 6.23m rates her fourth all time in the UTEP record book.

The Miners will be back in action next week (March 27-30) at the Nike Clyde Littlefield Texas Relays in Austin, Texas.
