FRISCO — Sophomore Nina Herrera was tabbed Southland Conference Athlete of the Week for the second week in a row, the league office announced on Tuesday.

Herrera's second-place finish helped lead UTSA to its second consecutive meet championship at last Friday's Ricardo Romo/Six Flags Fiesta Texas/H-E-B Classic. The Roadrunners won their annual home meet for the second time in the last three seasons.

The El Paso native finished as the top collegian for the second consecutive week after covering the 5,000-meter Park West Athletics Complex loop in 17:58.2. Her performance led a UTSA contingent that saw five of its athletes finish in the top nine.

The Roadrunners will be back in action on Monday, Sept. 26, when it travels to Nacogdoches for the Southland Pre-Conference meet.
