Barraza, Wallace Named Track Athletes of the Week

Brian Barraza and Brittany Wallace named American Track Athletes of the Week.

Feb. 18, 2014

HOUSTON - Freshman Brian Barraza and senior Brittany Wallace were selected as the Male and Female Track Athletes of the Week by American Athletic Conference officials Tuesday morning.

The accolades come just days after the two broke into the University of Houston school record books at the Tyson Invitational in Fayetteville, Ark. Barraza won the men's 5000-meter run (championship section) with a time of 14:23.29 breaking the second school record this season. Wallace placed in the top 10 of the women's 400m with a time of 53.25 to break the school record by .05 seconds.

There have been five school records broken this season and Barraza broke two so far. During the Texas A&M Aggie Invitational, the freshman won the men's 3000m finishing at 8:16.84 to crush to school record.

Wallace has bounced back after suffering a season ending injury last year. She sits on top of the American and was ranked No. 21 in the USTFCCCA National Team Rankings this week. 

UP NEXT
The women's 4x400m relay and the men's distance medley relay head to the Notre Dame Alex Wilson Invitational in Notre Dame, Ind., Saturday.
