HADLEY, Mass. – Connecticut College junior thrower Koko Mensah (Orange, N.J.) has been named the NESCAC Women's Field Perfomrer of the Week, as announced by the league office. She is being recognized for the first time this season.
Mensah most notably won the shot put at the Tufts Snowflake Classic by recording a toss that sailed 45-feet, 6.50-inches. The mark ranks second in the nation and bettered the rest of the field by more than two feet. The junior also placed third in the discus throw with a launch that traveled 122 feet to end the day with 16 of the team's 71 points.
The Connecticut College women's track & field program will next compete at the Trinity Invitational this weekend.
