University of Florida senior Liz Wanless (Belleville, Ill.) has been named Southeastern Conference Field Athlete of the Week, the league office announced Tuesday.
Wanless, in her first year as a Gator, has already claimed three shot put titles in just four events this season. Her most recent victory came Saturday at the Clemson Invitational where Wanless posted a NCAA automatic mark of 17.18m/56-04.50. Wanless is a transfer from Division III Bates College where she was a NCAA Champion in the shot put as well as an All-American in volleyball.
The Gators return to action as they host the Gator Invitational on Feb. 6 beginning at 10:30 a.m.
