Felix Earns Mountain West Athlete of the Week Nod

BOISE, Idaho - Boise State's Kurt Felix has earned his second-straight Mountain West Men's Indoor Track and Field Athlete of the Week honor in as many weeks, sharing this week's award with Ross Millington of New Mexico.

The senior hailing from St. David's, Grenada, Felix won the men's heptathlon title at the Boise State Team Challenge last weekend, setting new Mountain West and Boise State all-time records, respectively, by tallying 5,771 points to capture the individual crown. He also set a new Jacksons Indoor Track facility record in the process. During the heptathlon, Felix set a career-best mark in the long jump (25'-1.75") and a season-best mark of 7'-0.25" in the high jump.

Felix also earned the athlete of the week award on February 7, 2012.
