Patrick Casey (Oklahoma) and Tiffani McReynolds (Baylor) have been selected as the Big 12 Track and Field Athletes of the Week for competition Jan. 25-27. It is the first weekly award for both student-athletes.

Big 12 Indoor Track & Field Male Athlete of the Week
Patrick Casey, Oklahoma, Sr., Laurel, Mont.
Casey ran the nation's best mile when he crossed the finish line in 3:56.28 to win the event at the 2013 Razorback Invitational in Fayetteville, Ark. The time is nearly two whole seconds faster than the second-best time to date of the 2013 indoor track and field season. Additionally, it is a personal-best time for Casey who shaved three seconds off of his previous low of 3:59.67 set in 2011, and a new Oklahoma Track and Field Record in the mile. The senior is the first Sooner in program history to run the mile in under 3:58.00, after breaking George Alex's then-program leading time of 3:58.76, set in 2012.

Big 12 Indoor Track & Field Female Athlete of the Week
Tiffani McReynolds, Baylor, Jr., Kansas City, Kan.
McReynolds shaved significant time off her season-best in the 60 hurdles to earn the title at the Razorback Invitational. She posted a time of 8.10 to rank second in the NCAA this year. The mark is also tied for her and the program's third-best all-time. McReynolds had also qualified for finals in the 60-meter dash, but the quick turnaround from hurdles prevented her from competing. In the first two 60-meter hurdle finals of her junior indoor season, McReynolds has finished first both times as she won the event two weeks ago in College Station, Texas, in 8.22.

Date Male Female
Jan. 16     Keiron Stewart, Texas, Sr. Danielle Dowie, Texas, Jr.
Jan. 23 Erik Kynard, Kansas State, Sr. Tia Brooks, Oklahoma, Sr.
Jan. 29 Patrick Casey, Oklahoma, Sr. Tiffani McReynolds, Baylor, Jr.
