SPOKANE, Wash. – Alaska Anchorage sophomore Haleigh Lloyd captured the Great Northwest Athletic Conference Athlete of the Week honor following a record-breaking weekend at the Willamette Invitational on March 30-31, announced by the league Wednesday.

A local of Ladysmith, B.C., Lloyd collected her second career weekly accolade after breaking the conference record in the 400-meter hurdles with a winning-time of 59.98. Lloyd, who ranks second in Div. II in the event, became the first GNAC athlete to break the 60 second barrier, crushing the previous record of 1:00.31.

In addition to the GNAC best, Lloyd also broke the UAA record in the 100-meter hurdles with a time of 14.49, good for second-place at Willamette and fifth all-time in the GNAC record book. Lloyd, who made an appearance at the 2011 NCAA Championships, was also the lead leg on the Seawolves’ 4x100-meter relay squad that broke the school record with a time of 48.04.

Western Washington’s Michael Hoffman and Saint Martin’s Kyle Van Santen were co-recipients of the men’s weekly honor.

Lloyd will join the rest of the Seawolves this weekend at the Stanford Invitational on April 6-7.
