Following a career best performance in the high jump last weekend at the 20th Alan Connie Shamrock Invitational, Taylor Smith was named one of the MAC Outdoor Track and Field Athletes of the Week.

Smith, a junior at Ohio University, finished second in the high jump event behind Deandra Daniel from Coppin State University. Smith reached 5’8.75,” which is a MAC qualifying standard and the highest jump cleared in the league so far this season.

The Alan Connie Shamrock Invitation marks the beginning of the outdoor portion of the Bobcats season. Smith finished in fifth place at the MAC Indoor Track and Field Championship in late February.
