Following her pentathlon performance this weekend at Ahearn whcih broke Austra Skujyte's K-State and Ahearn records and came within one inch in the high jump of setting a new NCAA mark, Wildcat Akela Jones was once again named National Female Athlete of the Week by the United States Track and Field and Cross Country Coaches Association.

It's the second win in three weeks for the senior from Barbados, who's quickly becoming a national hero back home... and her profile in Manhattan's growing larger and larger as well.
