KU’s Sanni earns track & field honor


Kansas University junior Zainab Sanni was named the national female athlete of the week by the U.S. Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association on Tuesday.

Sanni had a stellar season debut last week at the Bob Timmons Challenge. She kicked the day off with a win and a personal-record time in the 60 meters in a time of 7.41. She picked up another individual win in the 200 meters (24.18).

She closed out her meet running the leadoff leg for the Jayhawks’ 4x400-meter relay squad. Kansas passed the baton around in 3:44.69 to take the win by more than five seconds.
