MACON, Ga. (May 23, 2014) – ETSU field athlete Katerina Vodova (Humpolec, Czech Republic) has been selected as the Atlantic Sun Most Outstanding Women’s Field Athlete by the league’s coaches after a stellar showing at the outdoor conference championships a week ago, the A-Sun office announced Friday.

The junior totaled 34 points in four different events which was the second-most among women’s competitors at the Championships.

Vodova took the top spot in the high jump with a leap of 1.76 meters, while also recording a personal best in the javelin throw with a toss of 39.79 meters to finish runner-up. Furthermore, the native Czech recorded another personal record in the pole vault with a second-place jump of 3.81 meters, while additionally placing runner-up in the long jump with a leap of 5.90 meters.
