    ST. LOUIS -- Returning All-American DeAnna Price is already off to a hot start in 2013-14, as she was named a co-female field athlete of the week by the Missouri Valley Conference on Wednesday for her performance at the Saluki Fast Start on Dec. 7.

    Price, a junior native of Moscow Mills, Mo., won both the weight throw and shot put at the Fast Start with monster personal bests. In the weight throw, Price broke her previous best by nearly a foot with a launch of 20.60m (67-07.00) -- which, currently ranks as the third best throw in the nation and the sixth-best mark all-time at SIU. Price won the shot put with a heave of 15.84m (51-11.75), which flew three feet further than her previous PR. That shot put mark ranks sixth in the nation and fifth all-time at SIU.

    Saluki track and field will resume the indoor season on Jan. 10-11 at home with the Saluki Open.
