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 enjoyed an outstanding Big South Conference championship last weekend at Winthrop. She set a school record in the hammer throw and finished in second place. Corey had a throw of 51.31 meters as she set a school record for the third straight meet. She earned eight points for the Bulldogs.


She earned another award on Monday when she was named to the Big South All-Academic team for her work in the classroom. Corey is majoring in chemistry and has a 3.797 GPA.
