USAF ACADEMY, Colo. - After setting a new Academy record in the 200-meter dash at last week's Air Force Team Challenge, junior Morgan Malone was named the department's Athlete of the Week on Monday, Feb. 10.
Crossing the finish line of the 200-meter dash in a time of 24.85, Malone easily bettered the previous record of 25-flat that had stood for the past eight years. In addition to setting a new program standard in the 200-meter dash, the native of San Antonio, Texas, also clocked the Academy's fourth-fastest 60-meter time at 7.76. Malone, who scored for the Falcons in both the 60-meter dash (sixth) and 200-meter dash (fourth), also ran a leg of the mile relay that finished fourth.
Malone and her teammates return to action on Saturday, Feb. 15, when they host the Air Force Collegiate Open at the Academy's Cadet Field House Indoor Track.
