Corey McClintock of the UNC Asheville women’s track and field squad is this week’s recipient of the Blue Cross and Blue Shield of North Carolina Athlete of the Week at UNC Asheville.


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


Corey finished in second place in the hammer throw on Saturday to highlight UNC Asheville’s performance on the second and final day of the VertKlasse Meeting at High Point. She set a school record with a throw of 49.45, breaking the record she set two weeks at Charlotte (48.13).


Corey and the Bulldogs will be in action again this Friday at Western Carolina when both squads compete in the Western Carolina Invitational.
