It’s just 12 days into the New Year and past University of Colorado cross country and track & field show up Jenny Barringer has been honored for her second athlete-of-the-year as she was named the Colorado Sports Hall of prominence 2009 College Female Athlete of the Year on Tuesday.
This marks the second direct season that Barringer has been given the honor. She becomes the second person to receive the honor twice in her career, following Shelley Sheetz who won the title in 1993 and ‘95. Just last week Barringer was named the recipient of Mile High Sports Magazine’s College Athlete of the Year.
Barringer had a year to remember; she has won six NCAA records and seven CU records and was awarded several top honors in the process. In December, she won the initial USTFCCCA’s The Bowerman award, which identifies annually the most outstanding collegiate male and female track & field athlete. Barringer was also named a finalist for the USATF’s Jesse Owens Athlete of the Year and was the only collegiate athlete in the field of five entrants. In June, she was named the recipient of the Honda Sports Award for track & field and was one of five finalists for the high-status Honda Broderick Cup, which goes to the nation’s top collegiate female athlete of the year.
