CARROLLTON, Ga. – For the first time this season, a UWG track and field athlete has been honored by the Gulf South Conference as Aalayla Farr was named the GSC’s Freshman of the Week.


The freshman from Austell was pivotal in UWG’s second place finish at the Berry Field Day Invitational, racking up 12 points on the day. Half of those points came from a third place finish in the triple jump with a jump of 10.95m. Farr then went on to finish sixth in the long jump, and was part of sixth place finish on the 4x100m relay team.


Farr and the Wolves are in the middle of their season, and are just over two weeks away from the GSC Championships in Rome. On the year, the Wolves have finished first in three meets.


The Gulf South Conference Championships are set for May 2-4 from Barron Stadium in Rome, Georgia.
