CONWAY - Erica Peake capped off her sensational 2013 indoor season on Wednesday by being named the Big South Conference Women's Track Athlete of the Week, the league announced.
Peake was honored for her performance as last week's NCAA Indoor Championship in which she re-set her own Coastal Carolina and Big South records in the 200 meters. She finished the race in 23.40 and placed ninth in the 16-runner field to earn second team All-American honors.
It is the fourth weekly conference honor Peake has earned since December and her eighth overall as a Chanticleer. The senior was also named the Women's Most Outstanding Track Performer at the Big South Indoor Championship after winning four events, including three individual titles.
Peake will be in action along with the rest of the Coastal Carolina track & field teams this weekend as they host the Shamrock Invitational beginning on Thursday at Doug Shaw Stadium.
