Superior, WI (NNCNOW.com) -- For the second time this season, Yellowjacket Katie Capriglione has been named the WIAC Women's Field Athlete of the Week, following her record-setting performance at Northern Minigan University's "Northern Challenge" last weekend.

Capriglione won both the weight throw and shot put, as well as broke the school record in each event.

Her throw of 57 feet and 9.75 inches broke her own record for the third consecutive week and moved her up to No. 3 in the NCAA Division III weight throw rankings.

In the shot put, Capriglione won the event with a mark of 44 feet and 5.25 inches, which broke her own school record and put her on the national leaderboard for the first time this season.

Capriglione currently sits 12th among all NCAA Division III shot putters.
