CLEVELAND -- Western Michigan track and field's Aisha Hodge was named Mid-American Conference Track Athlete of the Week on Tuesday afternoon by the MAC Office.
The award for Hodge comes after her first performance of the outdoor season, winning the 800-meter run at the Victor Lopez Classic at Rice University over the weekend. The junior middle-distance specialist ran a time of 2:11.73 to help the Broncos finish fourth in a field of 21 teams down in Houston, Texas. She also competed in the 1,500-meter run.
Hodge, who was a runner up in the 800 at last year's outdoor MAC Champion and the champion at the indoor MAC Championship this season, earns the award for the first time in her career at Western Michigan.
