Candice Scott named Athlete of the Week

University of Florida senior All-American Candice Scott (Port of Spain, Trinidad) was honored by The United States Track Coaches Association as Athlete of the Week, the association announced Monday.

Scott broke her own collegiate record in the weight throw with a toss of 77-02 (23.52m) at the Florida Intercollegiate on Saturday. Scott's previous mark of 75-11.50 (23.15m) was set earlier this season at the Clemson Opener on December 3, 2004. It was the fourth time in her storied Gator career that Scott has eclipsed the NCAA's best mark in the weight throw.

Scott and the rest of the Gators return to action at the Clemson Invitational on Friday, January 21.
