NEWBERG, Ore. --- After having one of the best weekends of the season, the George Fox track and field team garnered two Northwest Conference Student-Athletes of the Week, as Caleb Dalzell and Asia Greene made the list.

George Fox swept the men's and women's field student-athlete of the week awards, as both Dalzell and Greene made huge leaps on the national stage.

Dalzell, a sophomore from Gresham, Oregon, earned his first men's field student-athlete of the week award after dominating at the California Collegiate Invitational. He finished third in the discus and fourth in the shot put with NWC-leading numbers. He only trailed behind NCAA Division I and II athletes in both events. He posted a heave of 158-10 in the discus, while throwing 51-9 in the shot put. He moved up to eighth in the nation in the discus and 11th in the shot put. He also moved up to second All-Time at George Fox in the shot put, while jumping up to third All-Time in the discus. He leads the NWC in the shot put by two feet and the discus by seven feet.

Greene, a senior from Portland, Oregon, had another excellent performance in the women's long jump. She smashed her old George Fox record with a mark of 19-7. The previous record was 19-2.75.  She now leads the NWC by two feet and Div. III by seven inches. This is her second women's field student-athlete of the week award.

The George Fox women's track and field team also moved up to No. 9 in the USTFCCCA 2017 Outdoor Track & Field rankings.
