DANBURY, Conn. – Freshman Danika Ani of the Stevenson University women's outdoor track and field team was named the ECAC Division III South Track and Field Rookie of the Week earlier this week.
Ani, who was named the Middle Atlantic Conference Field Athlete of the Week on Monday, finished first in the shot put at the Messiah Track and Field Invitational on Saturday with a school record throw of 13.69 meters. Her throw ranks sixth in Division III currently, and she bested a field of 46 competitors by over three feet.
Ani qualified for NCAA indoor nationals in the shot put this past winter.
Stevenson returns to action Friday when it is slated to compete in the Hopkins/Loyola Invitational at Johns Hopkins.
