LOGAN, Utah - Utah State women's track and field athlete Chari Hawkins has been named the America First Credit Union Utah State Student-Athlete of the Week for the period ending Sunday, May 26, in an award that is voted on by a state-wide media panel.

It is the third time this year and third time in her career that Hawkins has received USU student-athlete of the week honors.

Hawkins, a sophomore from Rexburg, Idaho (Madison HS) qualified for the NCAA Outdoor Track & Field Finals in the high jump after finishing tied for third in the event at the first round of the NCAA Outdoor Championships last weekend with a mark of 1.79m (5-10.50). That height also ranks tied for second all-time in school history.

Hawkins, who will also compete in the heptathlon at the 2013 NCAA Outdoor Finals in Eugene, Ore., from June 5-8 will be joined by senior Will Henry who will compete in the 100m.

Nominees from other sports for USU Student-Athlete of the Week included:

MEN'S TRACK - Senior Will Henry (Richmond, Calif.) qualified for the NCAA Outdoor Track & Field Finals in the 100m after finishing 12th at the first round of the NCAA Outdoor Championships last weekend with a time of 10.60.
