MACON, Ga. (May 23, 2014) – ETSU field athlete Katerina Vodova (Humpolec, Czech Republic) has been selected as the Atlantic Sun Most Outstanding Women’s Field Athlete by the league’s coaches after a stellar showing at the outdoor conference championships a week ago, the A-Sun office announced Friday.

The junior totaled 34 points in four different events which was the second-most among women’s competitors at the Championships.

Vodova took the top spot in the high jump with a leap of 1.76 meters, while also recording a personal best in the javelin throw with a toss of 39.79 meters to finish runner-up. Furthermore, the native Czech recorded another personal record in the pole vault with a second-place jump of 3.81 meters, while additionally placing runner-up in the long jump with a leap of 5.90 meters.

League champion Jacksonville swept the other three league honors with Shanique Walker winning Women’s Most Outstanding Track Athlete, Samantha Turner securing Women’s Most Outstanding Freshman Athlete and Ron Grigg being selected as Women’s Coach of the Year.
