|Monmouth College's Lehr Earns Another Midwest Conference Honor
|Monmouth College's Gloria Lehr has been making the most of her senior season and has been named the Midwest Conference Performer of the Week in the women's field events for the second time this season.
Lehr, a Knoxville native, threw a provisional qualifying mark in the weight throw at last week's 21-team Keck Ecumenical. Her throw of 52'7-1/4" tied her for second, improving her conference-leading mark by nearly 3' and ranks her 11th in the nation. Lehr's 40'9" effort in the shot put placed her second, 1-1/2" out of first. Her points helped the Scots place third in the meet, less than three points out of second.
Lehr is a senior math and physics major.
