SANTA BARBARA, Calif. -- Cassie Brooker was named Big West Track Athlete of the Week for her performance in the 800 meters at the Occidental Invite last Saturday.
Brooker ran 2:11.02 in the 800 meters for a new personal best and moves up to sixth on the all-time 800 meter record list. This is Brooker's second Big West Athlete of the Week award in her running career at UCSB. She previously earned the award in 2009 during the cross country season after coming off of a redshirt freshman season.
Brooker will be competing in the 800 meters and 5,000 meters this weekend at the Big West Conference Championship.
