SPARTANBURG, S.C. – Elon track and field sophomore Sydney Griffin was named the Southern Conference’s Track Athlete of the Week as announced by the league office on Thursday, Feb. 27.

Griffin earned her second career SoCon weekly accolade after breaking her own school-record in the 60-meters hurdles twice last week during competition. The Marietta, Ga., native ran a time of 8.60 in the event at the Liberty Quad last Monday, Feb. 17, breaking her previous school-mark of 8.62 that she set a year ago as a freshman.

She bested that time last Friday, Feb. 21, at the Virginia Tech with a new personal-best of 8.56 and was third overall in the race. That performance is also the fastest time on the Southern Conference’s performance list in the 60-meters this season.

Griffin and the Phoenix will compete this weekend at the 2014 SoCon Indoor Championships inside the JDL Fast Track Indoor Complex in Winston-Salem, N.C. The meet will kick off on Saturday, March 1, at 10 a.m.
