HILLSBORO --- Annie Wright of George Fox was named NWC Field Student-Athlete of the Week for the Bruins' women's track and field team, the conference announced Monday.

Wright, a senior from Granite Bay, California, put together one of the best performances in NWC Championship history in the women's heptathlon on Tuesday, April 16. Her total score of 4953 was less than 10 points off the NWC Championship record. Wright is the school record holder in the women's heptathlon (5307) and the women's shot put (44-00.75), and was previously selected as a National Athlete of the Week this season. She is the third female in the past five seasons to represent the Bruins as an honoree (Sarah King, 2018; Asia Greene, 2015). This is the third time that Wright has been tabbed as an NWC Student-Athlete of the Week in 2019.

The No. 1-ranked Bruins will compete this weekend at the Northwest Conference Championships in Tacoma, Wash., hosted by Pacific Lutheran.
