WHITTIER, Calif. – The Southern California Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (SCIAC) office released their Athletes of the Week for Track & Field Monday and freshman Gabriella Torres Joubert (Tacoma, WA) received recognition for the first time as the Track Athlete of the Week.
In the 10th week of voting Torres Joubert becomes the fourth Poet to receive accolades this year and the third to win Track Athlete of the Week honors. She is also the second Poet to win Athlete of the Week honors in the past three weeks (Sabrina Van Beek (Atascadero, Calif.) – April 8).
Torres Joubert paced the Poets at the Bryan Clay Invitational with a stellar performance in the 4x400 relay. Joubert clocked her best-ever split in the event of 57.18 helping Whittier to a team time of 3:53.22 which currently ranks first in the SCIAC, second in the West region, and third in NCAA Division III.
Whittier has started preparations for the SCIAC Championships this weekend on April 27-28. The two-day event will be hosted by Claremont-M-S.
