Weininger women’s track OAC athlete of the week

Senior jumps specialist Mallory Weininger (Upper Sandusky) has been named the final Ohio Athletic Conference Field Athlete of the Week in the 2019 season for women's outdoor track and field, the league office announced Monday afternoon.

On Saturday, Weininger claimed the high jump title at the 2019 AJ Cody Invitational held at Ohio Northern, helping guide the team to first place in the four-team field. The senior set a new outdoor career-best after clearing 1.60 meters (5' 3"). 

Her effort ranks tenth all-time in program history and is the fifth-highest mark for a senior at ONU.

The clearance also moves Weininger into fourth on the 2019 OAC performance list and a tie for 43rd on the NCAA Division III performance list, just 0.05 meters (two inches) outside the top 20 marks in the country.

With the announcement, Weininger receives her first career OAC Field Athlete of the Week honor. She becomes the second Ohio Northern athlete to win the accolade during the 2019 outdoor season, joining junior All-American Maggie Krause (Chagrin Falls/Kenston) who won the award on April 1.

The Polar Bears (54-8 overall) will return to action this Friday and Saturday at the 2019 OAC Outdoor Track and Field Championships at Otterbein.
