Freshman Stacy Doornbos

LEXINGTON, Va. -- Washington and Lee freshman Stacy Doornbos (Roswell, Ga./Lassiter) has been named the Old Dominion Athletic Conference (ODAC) Women's Indoor Track & Field Athlete of the Week for the week ending Jan. 30. The selection marked the second time this season that Doornbos has won the award.

Doornbos broke two school records and was the top Division III finisher in two events at the Liberty Open over the weekend.

Doornbos won the 200-meter dash in a school-record time of 26.95 and claimed the 400-meter dash in a school-record time of 59.76. Both times currently rank as the top times in the ODAC this season.

Doornbos also established school records earlier this season in the 55-meter dash (7.56), long jump (17 feet, 4 1/2 inches) and 4x400 meter relay (4:16.25).

Washington and Lee will be back in action this Friday and Saturday at the VMI Relays.
