Sami Spenner breaks records, dominates conference

Sami Spenner of the UNO women's track team was named the Summit League Woman
Athlete of the week last week for the third time in a row.  It's also the fourth time Spenner has received the award this year.
It's a surprising feat, until one learns she almost qualified for the U.S. Olympic trials last summer and is one of the best athletes in all of Division I Track.
Spenner's continued success this season, after what she accomplished last year, has proven
to many just how exceptional of an athlete she truly is.
