Lemon garners second Patriot League weekly award
BETHLEHEM, Pa. – For the 10th time in her impressive career, senior E’Lana Lemon has been named the Patriot League’s Female Field Athlete of the Week after winning the weight throw at Saturday’s Army six-way meet with a toss of 17.66 meters. The award is the second this year for Lemon as she was also named the Female Field Athlete of the Week for the period ending on Dec. 2.
