Eliud Njubi and Monica Twum were selected as Conference USA Track & Field Male and Female Athletes of the Week for the weekend of January 26, the conference office announced today.

Njubi posted a Texas Tech Athletic Training Center record and an NCAA provisional qualifying time while winning the 800-meter run at the Red Raider Classic in a time of 1:49.01. The senior from Kenya finished eighth in the mile at the NCAA indoor championships a year ago. He placed eighth in the 800 meters and seventh in the 1500 meters at the NCAA outdoor championships.

Twum posted an NCAA provisional qualifying time of 6.82 while winning the 55-meter dash at the Red Raider Classic. Due to the altitude, that will convert to a 6.84 time, easily ahead of the provisional standard of 6.94. Twum, a junior from Ghana, placed sixth in the 60-meter dash at the NCAA indoor championships a year ago and was seventh in the 100-meter dash at the NCAA outdoor championships.

Njubi, Twum and the rest of the Flyin' Frogs will be in action again this weekend when they travel to Fayetteville, Arkansas to compete in the Tyson Pre-National Indoor Classic on Friday and Saturday.
