Nicole Luckenbach of the Eastern Washington University track and field team has been named Big Sky Conference Field Athlete of the Week for the week of April 5-10. This is the second-straight week she was given the honor.

She will compete Friday (April 16) at 3 p.m. at the Mt. Sac. Relays/Combined Events in Walnut, Calif. The senior is a 2005 graduate of Snohomish (Wash.) High School.

At the WAR 3 (Washington versus Oregon, Montana and Idaho) on April 10, Luckenbach had a winning throw of 199-2 to break her own school record and move her into ninth in NCAA Division I and sixth on the NCAA Division I West Region best list. It was the fourth-best hammer throw in Big Sky Conference history.

Her throw of 193-0 on Friday at the 39th Annual Pelluer Invitational broke school, meet and stadium records. She broke her own school record that she set last year at the Big Sky Conference Championships with a mark of 191-11. The previous Pelluer record was set by Gabby Midles in 2009 with a throw of 185-11 and the old Woodward Field record of 183-7 was set by Ashley Jones of Montana State in 2006.
