JEFFERSON CITY - Latoya King has been selected as the MIAA's Women's Track Athlete of the Week after qualifying for the national championships in the 200-meter dash at the Billiken Invitational on Saturday, April 13. King was chosen in a vote by a select panel of conference sports information directors, with the league announcing the award on Monday, April 15.

King won two races at the Billiken Invitational, including setting an automatic-qualifying time for NCAA Division II Outdoor Track & Field National Championship in the 200-meter dash. King won that race in 23.63, beating 50 other runners in the process. King was also victorious in the 100-meter dash, setting a provisional qualifying time of 11.65. Both times currently lead the MIAA, with her mark in the 200m standing as just one of the league's only two automatic qualifiers in individual track events.

This marks the fourth time that King has been chosen as the MIAA's Women's Track Athlete of the Week, and the second time this season. She was previously honored on March 25 after posting a provisional-qualifying time in the 100m at the WUSTL Mini-Meet. King also earned the honor twice during the indoor season of the 2011-12 campaign.

The Blue Tigers have a busy weekend ahead, with Lincoln scheduled to compete in both Kansas Relays and the Dewey Allgood Invitational. Lincoln will be in Lawrence, Kan. from April 18-20 for the Kansas Relays, which will be hosted by the University of Kansas. Some members of the Lincoln women's track & field team will then head to Rolla, Mo. for the Missouri S&T-hosted Dewey Allgood Invitational on April 21.
