FORT WORTH – Track & field’s Lorraine Ugen and baseball’s Kyle Von Tungeln are the TCU Athletes of the Week, the athletics department announced Wednesday.
Ugen picked up where she left off after the indoor season, highlighting TCU’s performance at the TCU Invitational, the first outdoor meet of the year. She won the event with a leap of 22-5 feet.
The London, England, native hit her best mark of the day on her third attempt and it was good for fourth all-time at TCU. Prior to competing in the long jump, Ugen posted a top-10 finish in the women’s 100-meter dash.
Von Tungeln was selected after notching four multi-hit games in five games last week. Against UNLV last Saturday, Von Tulgeln tallied a career-best three hits and went 7-for-11 overall in the weekend set against the Rebels.
He reached base in all five games, helping the Frogs to a 5-0 mark in those outings. The Sugar Land, Texas, native got on base four of the five times he came to the plate in the series finale against UNLV.
