ST. LOUIS – Saint Louis freshman Alex Oleson was named the Atlantic 10 Conference's Rookie of the Week for Outdoor Track & Field on Tuesday.
It is Oleson's first weekly award of the outdoor season, and his third honor overall. He was twice awarded A-10 weekly honors earlier this year for indoor track and field.
Oleson posted a seasonal-best in the high jump this past weekend at the Billiken Invitational, posting a mark of 1.98 meters to finish second. His performance helped Saint Louis capture the team title in the Billiken Invitational.
The Billikens are in action this weekend at the Joe Walker Invitational at Ole Miss in Oxford, Mississippi.
