EMMITSBURG, Md. (February 6, 2024) – Sophomore pole vaulter Emelie Beckman received recognition as the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference (MAAC) Women’s Field Performer of the Week Tuesday.  

At Penn State’s Sykes & Sabock Challenge on February 3, Beckman finished the pole vault with a personal best 3.85 meters. The mark is also good for the top distance among MAAC competitors this season.
