HIGH POINT, N.C. --- Lees-McRae College sophomore Jamara Cook (Claremont, N.C.) has been named the Conference Carolinas Women's Field Athlete of the Week after posting a pair of top-10 finishes at the Terrier Relays, hosted by Wofford College, this past weekend.

Cook turned in a pair of impressive performances at the Terrier Relays, finishing third in the discus throw with a mark of 34.25 meters, which nearly equaled the school record of 34.34 meters. The Claremont, N.C. native followed with an eighth-place showing in the shot put with a throw of 10.35 meters.

Lees-McRae returns to action on April 15 and 16 when the Bobcats host the Conference Carolinas Championships at the Arthur, Laurentsen and Sanders Track and Field Complex on the LMC campus.
