Baldwin Wallace University junior jumper Erin Kasper, an Amherst Steele High School alumna, has been named the Ohio Athletic Conference Women’s Field Athlete of the Week.
The accolade is linked to her efforts at the season opening OAC North Split Meet at Mount Union.
Kasper, who earns her first career OAC weekly honor, won one event and was a runner-up in another last Friday.
She won the high jump with a career-best leap of 5 feet 5.25 inches and was the runner-up in the long jump with a career-best mark of 17 feet 5.25 inches. Kasper’s mark in the high jump is tied for sixth in the nation.
