    April 9, 2002

    Sophomore thrower L'Orangerie Crawford was named the Pac-10's Women's Field Athlete of the Week for April 1-8, conference commissioner Tom Hansen announced today.

    Competing at the CSUN Invitational last Saturday, Crawford recorded a personal best in the hammer with a mark of 205-5. It was also a USC season best, an NCAA automatic qualifying mark, second on the all-time USC hammer chart and fifth on the all-time Pac-10 chart. Her previous best was 202-5.

    Crawford followed that hammer performance with a throw of 52-10 1/4 in the shot, another NCAA automatic mark (Crawford has a best of 53-4 1/4 in the shot).

    It's the first Pac-10 Athlete of the Week honor for Crawford, who hails from Los Angeles.
