USAF ACADEMY, Colo. - After clocking the Academy's fastest Division I time in the 800-meter run last Friday at the 105th Drake Relays, senior Annette Eichenberger was named the Air Force Athlete of the Week on Monday, April 28. It is the third such honor of the season for Eichenberger, who also claimed the award twice during the indoor season.
With a career-best time of 2:04.52, Eichenberger clocked the second-fastest overall time in Academy history, and the fastest time by a Division I runner, en route to a runner-up finish in the 800-meter run on the Blue Oval in Des Moines, Iowa. The senior, who subtracted over two seconds from her own previous time, cut nearly two seconds from the previous DI-best time that had stood since 2010.
Eichenberger shared the athletic department's April 28 honor with David Higgins of the rifle team.
