It's Four in a Row for Nwaba--Big West Honors Her As Heptathlon Championship

IRVINE, Calif.--The Big West Conference awarded Barbara Nwaba her fourth consecutive Big West Athlete Field Athlete of the Week award after her performance at the Conference Multi-Event Championship last weekend at UC Irvine's Anteater Stadium.

Nwaba dominated the heptathlon, leading all four events on day one and one of the three events on day two for a total combined score of 5,709. Nwaba's score not only surpassed the four-year old Conference record set by Sharon Day in 2008 but also ranks her number one in the UCSB all-time heptathlon record books.

Nwaba continues to hold the overall Big West Conference record with her lifetime best score of 5,986 which she earned at the Sam Adams Multi-Events.
