Missouri track star Karissa Schweizer was honored as the women's indoor Midwest Regional Track Athlete of the Year on Monday by the United States Track and Field and Cross Country Coaches Association.
This regional honor isn't new for her as she won it for cross country in 2016. She also claimed the award for cross country, indoor and outdoor track in 2017, making Monday's award her fifth overall.
Former MU basketball recruit Mark Smith transferring from Illinois
Illinois guard Mark Smith will be transferring from the program after only one season with the Illini. Smith confirmed his departure on Monday.
The freshman was a four-star recruit from Edwardsville, Illinois, becoming the first to sign with the program in almost 50 years.
This news comes after a disappointing season for Illinois as the team finished 14-18, and Smith posted under 5.8 points per game in about 19 minutes. There are no indications for where he intends to sign.
