Rachel Tanczos Earns ACC Field Performer Of The Week Recognition

NOTRE DAME, Ind. — For the second time this season, University of Notre Dame junior thrower Rachel Tanczos has been named the Atlantic Coast Conference Field Performer of the Week. Tanczos has reset her own program record in the weight throw twice this season, most recently at the Power Five Invitational.

Tanczos’ throw of 22.51m broke her own school record that she set earlier this season at the Blue-Gold Invite. The mark currently sits as the second-best weight throw in the country for the 2020 season and the longest recorded distance in the ACC.

The Irish will host the Meyo Invitational on Friday, Feb. 7 and Saturday, Feb. 8 at the Loftus Sports Center on Notre Dame’s campus.
