SAN LUIS OBISPO, Calif. — After taking 14th place in the women’s triple jump at the West Preliminary Round of the NCAA Track & Field Championships on Saturday at Sacramento State, Mustang junior Abibat Rahman-Davies has been selected as the Coca-Cola Cal Poly Student-Athlete of the Week.
Rahman-Davies earned a career-best mark of 41 feet, 11.5 inches, improving her No. 4 ranking in school history for the event, only two spots back of advancing to the National Finals at Texas.
A Political Science major from Rancho Cucamonga, Rahman-Davies landed her PR on her second attempt in Hornet Stadium. She led Flight 2, ahead of Bailey Demar of North Dakota State (41’ 6”) and Jessica Barreira from Arizona State (41’ 5”).
Rahman-Davies, making her second straight NCAA appearance, defended her conference title on May 11, becoming the Big West’s third woman in 36 years to repeat as a back-to-back triple jump champ.
