For the second time in two meets this season, Weber State's Amber Henry was selected the Big Sky Conference's Women's Track Athlete of the Week.

Henry, a senior from Mountain View, Wyo., won Saturday's 1,500-meter race at Stewart Stadium in record fashion, 4 minutes, 22.96 seconds. It broke the Stadium record by nearly six seconds. With altitude adjustments, the time converts to 4:17.58, the best in the Big Sky this season and the eighth-best in the nation this season. Amber currently has the second best time in the nation in the steeplechase.

Henry will run at the Mt. Sac Relays this weekend in Walnut, Calif.
