HUNTINGDON, Pa. -- Juniata College senior Laura Rupprecht (Jefferson, Md./Brunswick) has been named the Landmark Conference women's Field Athlete of the Week, for the week ending February 15, 2009.

Rupprecht finished third overall in the Mile Run at Saturday's Bucknell Winter Classic in Lewisburg, Pa., with a time of 5:19.79 - breaking her own Juniata College record by nearly four seconds, and posting the best mile time in the Landmark Conference this season.

Rupprecht followed up by running the first leg of the Juniata's 4x400m relay team at the Bucknell event, which finished ninth overall with a time of 4:16.93. That mark is the third-best 4x400m time in school history.

Juniata will be at the Susquehanna Open this Saturday, Feb. 21, for a final tune-up before the Landmark Conference Indoor Track & Field Championships on February 28 in Selinsgrove, Pa.
