Redhawk student-athletes from three different sports were conference weekly honors this week.

Lewis was awarded with OVC Male Field Athlete of the Week for the first time as a Redhawk after placing first in the discus throw and the shot put, while finishing fourth in the hammer throw.

Busch also notched her first OVC award when she claimed OVC Female Field Athlete of the Week honors. The graduate student finished fourth in the hammer throw, first in the discus, and third in the shot put.

Miles picked up OVC Female Track Athlete of the Week honors after finishing first in both the 100m and 200m.
