CEDAR CITY, Utah - Feb. 5 - Junior Kayla Kovar received her third Big Sky Field Athlete of the Week award after her performance in the shot put and weight throw at Northern Arizona's Mountain T's Invitational last weekend.

Her shot put mark currently ranks 28th in the nation and first in the Big Sky, while her weight throw marks ranks third in the conference behind Sacramento State's Erinn Jones (59-9) and Eastern Washington's Vania Tauvela (58-8.5).
