APSU Track and Field
Brentwood, TN – Sophomore Cenitra Hudson, of Austin Peay State University women’s track and field team, has been named the Ohio Valley Conference’s Field Athlete of the Week, the conference office announced, Tuesday.
Hudson took over the APSU school record in the triple jump, Saturday, at the Ed Temple/Tennessee State Invitational, with a 12.45m (40-10.25) mark. Not only was a personal best for Hudson, it also registered as the OVC’s best mark in the young indoor season.
“That was a huge jump and big mark for her,” head coach Doug Molnar said. “It sets her up and gives her an idea of what her capabilities are this year. She’s worked so hard this offseason, the summer and this fall. This is a tribute to the work she’s put in.”
Hudson’s mark, Saturday, was good enough for third at the Ed Temple/TSU Invite. It was one of two top-10 finishes for Hudson on the day. She also ran a personal-best 26.08 in the 200-meter dash, which placed seventh and led the Austin Peay contingent.
