SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (Summit League) – An impressive performance by North Dakota State’s Amanda Levin earned her this week’s Summit League Track & Field Athlete of the Week award.
Levin broke the NDSU school record in the heptathlon at the Bryan Clay Invitational in Azusa, Calif., on Apr. 17-18. Her score of 5,695 points surpassed Whitney Carlson’s previous NDSU all-time best by 139 points. Levin also likely locked up a spot at the NCAA Outdoor Championships, as no athlete has ever scored over 5,600 points in the heptathlon and not qualified for the national meet.
