CSU’s Kiah Hicks was named Mountain West Athlete of the Week for the second time this season on Tuesday. Hicks performed well at the CU Invitational last weekend in prelude to the honor.

The Colorado Springs, Colo. native took first place in the shot put with a throw of 49′ feet, 7 inches, which was third-best in the Mountain West this season, and she also took first in the discus with a throw of 178-5.5′, which is a personal record and places her ninth nationally.

This was the third Mountain West Athlete of the Week award given to CSU this season, as Trevor Brown also received the award earlier this year.

The Colorado State Rams will next participate at the Mt. Sac Relays beginning Thursday in Walnut, Calif.
