Ronnie Baker was named the Big 12 Athlete of the Week after last week’s performance, the conference announced Wednesday.
Baker sprinted to two first-place finishes at the New Mexico Team Invitational on Saturday, earning the top times in the 60 meter (6.61) and 200 meter (20.60) races. His personal-best time of 20.60 in the 200-meter dash marked the second fastest time in TCU history, trailing only former World Champion Kim Collins (20.52, 2000).
His effort currently ranks as the second fastest 200-meter time in the NCAA this season.
The defending NCAA indoor champion also recorded his fastest 60-meter time of the season after running a 6.58 in the prelims. That mark ranks as the fourth fastest in the nation this year.
Baker and the Horned Frogs will return to action in College Station on Feb. 6 for the Texas A&M Charlie Thomas Invitational.
