NEW ORLEANS --- In her first week of competition for the 2019 indoor track and field season, senior Sarah King was named women's NCAA Division III National Athlete of the Week.

King was exceptional at the UW Indoor Preview on Jan. 12, as NCAA Division I the University of Washington hosted a slew of powerhouses.

In her event, the women's 400m, King competed against NCAA Div. I and II athletes. She won her heat with a time of 55.11, making her the fourth fastest performer in NCAA Div. III history. It also beat her previous PR of 55.24, which was set at the NCAA Championships last season and a school record.

This marks the first time that both King and the George Fox program have received National Athlete of the Week honors during the indoor season.
