APSU’s Maikea Davis earns OVC Track Athlete of the Week honor

 

Ohio Valley Conference - OVCBrentwood, TN – After breaking the school record twice in the 200m dash at last weekend’s Niswonger Invitational, Austin Peay State University track and field junior Maikea Davis has been named Ohio Valley Conference Indoor Track Athlete of the Week, per an announcement from the conference office, Wednesday.

Davis qualified and placed third in the event out of 107 athletes at Johnson City, TN, her third top-three finish in as many meets since joining the Lady Govs.

After breaking the school record in her inaugural run at the MT Christmas Invitational, December 7th, she lowered the mark with a 24.82 in the prelims last weekend and then further still with a blistering 24.57 mark in the finals.

Not only is Davis’ time an Austin Peay best, it’s the top mark by an OVC athlete this season.

She’s the first Lady Gov to take a weekly indoor track honor since Breigh Jones took the February 19th, 2013 honor after placing third in the 400m dash at the Buckeye Tune-Up.

Davis and the rest of the Lady Govs return to the track Friday, January 24th, at the Gladstein Invitational in Bloomington, IN.
