IRVING, Texas - Rice sophomore jumper Daisy Ding was tabbed the Conference USA Female Athlete of the Week on Tuesday, the league office announced.
Ding set a PR and won the first high jump competition of her career with a winning leap of 1.77m (5-09.75) at Friday's TSU Relays. A native of Sydney, Australia, Ding's jump was good enough for a tie for seventh-best in the nation thus far.
