Isenbarger Named C-USA Field Athlete of the Week
BOWLING GREEN, Ky. – After winning the high jump at the Indiana Invitational, Katie Isenbarger has been named Conference USA’s Female Field Athlete of the Week.
Isenbarger cleared a mark of 1.81m to claim the high jump victory. She finished first in a field of 19 competitors and beat out 10 student-athletes from Power 5 schools.
Isenbarger has strung together a strong indoor and outdoor season with a Conference Championship to her credit. She won the C-USA Indoor Women’s High Jump Championship earlier this year which clinched her a trip to NCAA Indoor Nationals where she finished 12th in the country. That performance cemented her as an All-American for the second-consecutive season. Isenbarger also set the WKU program record for indoor high jump with a mark of 1.85 at Boston University’s last-chance meet.
Isenbarger and the rest of the Hilltoppers will wrap up their outdoor regular season Friday and Saturday at the Music City Challenge, hosted by Vanderbilt in Nashville.
