Toledo, OH - Senior Emma Kertesz is Toledo's Athlete of the Week after receiving the 2012 Mid-American Conference Women's Outdoor Most Valuable Performer Award on top of being named first-team All-MAC at last weekend's conference championships.
Her performance helped the Rockets match their program best with a second-place showing at the meet. With winning times of 10:33.45 in the 3,000-meter steeplechase and 16:35.87 in the 5,000 meters, Kertesz led the Rockets to the only two distance-event sweeps in the history of the MAC Championships. She also placed third in the 1500-meters with a time of 4:28.16.
The Women's Outdoor MVP award comes just over two months after Kertesz was also named the conference MVP for her performance at the MAC indoor championships, as well.
