Julia Fixsen named ACC Women's Field Performer of the Week

GREENSBORO, N.C. – Junior Julia Fixsen was named ACC Women’s Field Performer of the Week, the Atlantic Coast Conference announced on Tuesday, Jan. 17.  

“Julia did a fantastic job at our first meet of the season,” said assistant coach Bob Phillips. “We had to back off her training a bit in December, so she is not back to a full approach yet. Regardless, she was still determined to put up a strong mark and clearly did that, now tied for the top mark in the country.” 

Fixsen is tied for first in Nation after clearing a season-best height of 14′ 7.25″ (4.45m) in the women’s pole vault event at the Virginia Tech Invitational. Fixsen finished second among the 11 student-athletes competing in the field. Volunteer assistant coach, Bridget Williams, won the event clearing a facility record height of 15′ 7.25″ (4.76m). Williams currently hold the number one mark in the world. 

Virginia Tech will be back in action Jan. 20 – 21 to host the Hokie Invitational in Blacksburg, Va.
