UNIVERSITY OF RICHMOND, Va. - Following a near school-record performance at last week's Penn Relays, senior Meaghan McGovern was selected as Women's Outdoor Track & Field Performer of the Week for the first time on Monday.

McGovern (North Kingston, R.I./North Kingston) saved her best hurl for last in Thursday's College section of the hammer, posting a personal-best toss of 56.24 meters (184-6) on her sixth and final toss to finish second in the event. Her PR, which was just .18 meters off Beth Crocus' 2006 school-record of 56.42 meters, was two full meters further than her winning throw at last year's Penn Relays.

The senior standout's toss currently ranks 31st in the NCAA East Region, with it thus likely to land her a spot in May's NCAA East Region Championship for a third-consecutive season.
