Lincoln, Neb. - Nebraska senior Chris Phipps was honored by the Big Ten Conference on Wednesday after being selected as the Big Ten Co-Field Athlete-of-the-Week. The accolade marks his first Big Ten outdoor track and field weekly award.

Phipps earned the accolade after recording a first-place finish in the long jump (25-4 1/2) at the Arkansas Spring Invitational. His long jump mark ranks first in the conference and is tied for seventh in the NCAA this season.
