NEW HAVEN, Conn. – Philadelphia University freshman Lindsey Carl (Berwick, Pa./Central Columbia) was selected as the Central Atlantic Collegiate Conference women's field rookie of the week for the second time in three weeks on Monday.

In addition to the high jump, Carl also took part in the long jump and discus for the first time in 2016, finishing 10th in the long jump (4.36 meters, 14' 3.75") and 13th in the discus (26.04 meters, 85' 5").
Philadelphia's next event is the Widener Invitational on Saturday, April 23 at Widener University.
