MISSOULA, Mont. -

Montana’s Lindsey Hall continues to rack up the outdoor Big Sky Conference track and field awards.

The junior was named Women's athlete of the week in the Big Sky Conference for the second time already this spring.

The Missoula native won the heptathlon over the weekend at UNLV's Sheila Tarr-Smith Multis.

Hall posted 5,343 points.  That mark was just 17 shy of the University of Montana track record.  Her score was nearly 500 points better than anyone at the meet.  It also puts Hall firmly atop the Big Sky Conference heptathlon standings, and ranks her 15th in the entire nation.
