COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. – Fresno State junior Elena Miezava was selected Mountain West Women's Cross Country Athlete of the Week following a strong performance on Sept. 18 at the UCR Invitational.
In just her second-ever 6K for the Bulldogs, Miezava clocked the third-best time in program history at 20:35.8 to place fifth overall at the meet. Her time was 30 seconds better than she ran during the spring at the Mountain West Championships.
Miezava is the first Bulldog athlete to win the honor since Annemarie Schwanz on Sept. 20, 2016. It is the fifth time that the Fresno State women's program has earned the weekly honor since joining the Mountain West in 2012.
