Gibson earns conference honors in track and field

Junior Dannielle Gibson has been named the Big Ten Co-Women’s Track Athlete of the Week after a 42-8 leap in triple jump made her the number one triple jumper in the country.

She shares the honor with Wisconsin’s Kelsey Card.

This is the first Penn State women’s Outdoor Field Athlete of the Week since Melissa Kurzdorfer in 2014. It is also a first for Gibson.

The Penn State track & field team travels to Florida for the Florida Relays on Friday.
