CHARLTON, Mass. — Junior co-captain Tiffany Ofili (Ypsilanti, Mich./Ypsilanti) of the University of Michigan women’s track and field team was named TrackShark.com women’s Performer of the Week earlier this week.

Ofili broke her own 60-meter hurdles school record and matched the 2008 season’s fastest collegiate time with her first-place, NCAA automatic qualifying time of 8.04 seconds Saturday (Feb. 9) at the Meyo Invitational in South Bend, Ind. Ofili had twice run 8.05, setting the previous record at the 2007 the Meyo Invitational (Feb. 3, 2007) and matching it in the 2008 season opener Jan. 12 at the Kentucky Invitational.

Ofili is tied for the nation’s top time with Georgia Tech’s Fatmata Fofanah, who ran 8.04 to edge Ofili for first place at the Kentucky Invitational.

Michigan will compete at two events this coming weekend, sending a group to the Tyson Invitational Friday and Saturday (Feb. 15-16) at the University of Arkansas in Fayetteville while others travel across Washtenaw County to the Eastern Michigan University Classic on Saturday (Feb. 16) in Ypsilanti.
