SMU sophomore Simone du Toit was named the Conference USA Outdoor Track and Field Co-Athlete of the Week Tuesday after a pair of Top-10 finishes at the Oliver Jackson Open in Abilene.

She shares the weekly honor with junior Anderson Mutegi of the University of Texas-El Paso.

At the Oliver Jackson Open, du Toit recorded her season-best distance of 54.45 meters in the discus, which was good for sixth-best in this year’s NCAA rankings.

She won another title with a toss of 16.35 meters in the shot put event.
This is the second career Athlete of the Week award for du Toit, who was also honored after the week of Mar. 30.

The team will get a week off before returning to action on May 13 for the C-USA Championships in Orlando.
