Curry named Conference Carolinas Field Athlete of the Week

HIGH POINT, N.C. --- Lees-McRae College freshman Kortnie Curry (Lexington, N.C.) has been named the Conference Carolinas Women's Field Athlete of the Week for the first time in her career, announced league officials Wednesday.

Curry broke her own school record from the previous meet at Winthrop University's Asics Classic this weekend, finishing third with a mark of 1.60 meters in the high jump. The freshman currently holds the school's high jump record in both the indoor and outdoor event, having recorded a top-three finish in each of her first two collegiate outdoor meets.

Lees-McRae returns to action this weekend at the Wofford Terrier Relays, hosted by Wofford College in Spartanburg, S.C.
