Metro roundup: Indiana State’s Swift, Rudolph, Wise honored by MVC

TERRE HAUTE — For seven consecutive, the Indiana State track and field team has had at least one athlete named to the Missouri Valley Conference Athlete of the Week award.

This week, the league office announced that senior Greggmar Swift, as well as sophomores Kimyanna Rudolph and Katie Wise. were honored as the recipients for their efforts this past weekend at Eastern Illinois and Notre Dame.

This was Swift’s sixth honor of the season. Swift finished third in a time of 7.78 seconds after a 7.75-second clocking in prelims.

Wise earned her fifth honor of the 2013-2014 season after she won the 60 dash in a time of 7.39, but blazed a 7.36-second clocking in the preliminary round for her personal best as a Sycamore. Her time ranks her 22nd nationally.

Rudolph became the seventh athlete to receive this honor this year. She cleared 13 feet, 8 1/4 inches in the pole vault to win the Eastern Illinois Friday Night Special. She now ranks 21st nationally and first in the MVC, where she is the defending champion.

The Sycamores will head to Cedar Falls, Iowa, for the 2014 MVC indoor championships Saturday and Sunday.
