Lincoln University track and field athletes Judith Riley and Mandela Clifford have been named Mid-America Intercollegiate Athletics Association Track Athletes of the Week as announced by the conference office on Monday.

Riley helped contribute 36 points to lead the Lincoln Women’s Track and Field team to the team title at Findlay. The freshman from Jamaica set a season-best time in the 60 metres (m) by clocking a time of 7.49, which is also good for fourth-best in Division II. She won the 200m with a time of 25.23 and then added to that a first-place finish in the 60 m with a time of 8.70, which is the eighth-best in Division II. Riley rounded out the day by helping the 4×4 squad to first with a time of 3:55.07.

Clifford set or tied meet records at the Findlay Division II Team Challenge in both the 60 m and 200 m. The junior from St Lucia raced to first in the 60m with a time of 6.80 to tie a pair of former athletes in the same event for their top marks at Findlay. He added to that a time of 21.49 in the 200 m to not only win the event, but set the meet record time in the process. His time in the 200 m is the third-best mark so far in Division II.

This marks the third straight week that the Blue Tigers have swept the Track Athlete of the Week honours on the men’s and women’s side, with Roxroy Cato and Nyoka Cole taking the honours in back-to-back weeks.
