This week’s batch of National Athletes of the Week might be the best yet when it comes to what they accomplished as a whole during competition in NCAA and NJCAA Indoor Track & Field.

These eight athletes, as named Tuesday by the U.S. Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association (USTFCCCA), blistered the track and tested the limits of the throwing arcs.

National Athlete of the Week is an award selected and presented by the USTFCCCA Communications Staff at the beginning of each week to eight collegiate indoor track & field athletes (male and female for each of the three NCAA divisions and the NJCAA).

Nominations are open to the public. Coaches and sports information directors are encouraged to nominate their student-athletes; as are student-athletes, their families and friends, and fans of their programs.

The award seeks to highlight not only the very best times, marks and scores on a week-to-week basis, but also performances that were significant on the national landscape and/or the latest in a series of strong outings. Quality of competition, suspenseful finishes and other factors will also play a role in the decision.
