Chenoa Freeman has broken the Liberty 300 and 400-meter dash records this season.

Liberty sophomore Chenoa Freeman, who broke the school record in the 400-meter dash at last weekend's Sykes-Sabock Challenge Cup, has won her second Big South Choice Hotels Women's Indoor Track Athlete of the Week honor.

Freeman (Lincoln, Del.) pulled double duty at the meet, held at Penn State's Horace Ashenfelter III Indoor Track on Feb. 1-2. She placed sixth in the 400-meter dash in a school-record time of 56.09 seconds, putting her name in the Liberty record book for the second time this season. Freeman previously eclipsed the 300-meter dash mark with a 39.55 clocking on Jan. 11. Both standards had been held by Gina Turner for 16 years.

Freeman also took eighth place at 200 meters, finishing in 25.17 seconds. She is now No. 4 on Liberty's all-time performance list in the event.

The sophomore, who claimed her first Big South Women's Indoor Track Athlete of the Week distinction on Jan. 16, is listed No. 1 in the Big South at 400 meters and No. 4 at 200 meters.

Freeman is the top entrant in the 400-meter dash at Friday's Liberty Quad, to be held at the Tolsma Indoor Track Center. She is slated to run at 7:35 p.m. at the final home indoor meet of the year.
