Christiansen Named BSC Athlete of the Week
Liberty junior Jacy Christiansen has been honored as the Big South Conference Choice Hotels Women's Indoor Track Athlete of the Week for her efforts at the Liberty Open.
This is the second Big South weekly award of Christiansen's career, after the New Hampshire native was tabbed Big South Women's Cross Country Runner of the Week on Oct. 2, 2013.
Making her 2013-14 indoor season debut, Christiansen got her day started with a third-place finish in the women's mile. Her time of 5:00.74 qualified her for the ECAC meet and currently tops the Big South performance list.
Christiansen then ran the 1,000 meters for the first time in her career, clocking a time of 3:05.30 for another third-place showing.
Liberty will return to action Friday and Saturday, when the Flames and Lady Flames compete at the Hokie Invitational in Blacksburg, Va.
