Hargrove Named Big Ten Women’s Track Athlete of the Week

IOWA CITY, Iowa – University of Iowa track and field athlete LaSarah Hargrove was named the Big Ten Women’s Track Athlete of the Week, the conference announced Wednesday.

The weekly honor is the first of Hargrove’s career. The Hawkeyes’ last Track Athlete of the Week was Karina Joiner on May 12, 2021.

The Hawkeye sprinter ran the third-fastest 60-meter time in program history (7.40) at the Jimmy Grant Invitational on Saturday. That mark currently ranks fourth-fastest in the NCAA and leads the Big Ten.

Hargrove, a Tampa, Florida, native is a sophomore criminology major at Iowa. She earned Academic All-Big Ten honors a year ago and was a Dean’s List student both semesters.

Hargrove and the Hawkeyes return to action January 14 and 15 in Iowa City, hosting the Hawkeye Invitational.
