Indianapolis, Ind. - Youngstown State freshman thrower Jennifer Neider and junior sprinter Ciara Jarrett were named Athletes of the Week by the Horizon League for their performances at the YSU National Invitational.

Jarrett put together strong performances in three events at the YSU National Invitational, including her second consecutive win in the 200m, beating out a field of 32 with her 24.71 seconds finish.

She also posted a time of 7.67 seconds in the 60m dash to place second in a field of 26 and helped the 4x400m relay team set a new school record with a 3:48.88 finish. Off the track, Jarrett finished 12th out of 24 in the long jump with a 4.80m distance.
