Junior sprinter Milan Ristic is this week's Blue Cross Blue Shield of North Carolina Athlete of the Week.


Each week the school selects a BCBSNC Athlete of the Week upon their performance from the previous week's action.


Milan earned second team All-American honors this past weekend by competing at the NCAA Indoor Track and Field Championships at the University of Arkansas. Ristic became the first Bulldog indoor track and field student-athlete to ever compete at the NCAA Championships.


He competed in the 60-meter hurdles and finished 13th overall in the event with a time of 7.80. Ristic was seeded 14th in the event but moved up to 13th in the final standings.


The Bulldog track and field outdoor teams open the 2013 season at the 49er Invitational this week starting on Thursday, March 14.
