Michigan State’s Jenna Magness named Women’s Track Athlete of Big Ten Championships

Michigan State Spartans fifth-year senior Jenna Magness was just named the Women’s Track Athlete of the Big Ten Championships.

Magness became the first Big Ten women’s track athlete to win both the 5,000m and 10,000m since Michigan’s Gina Sereno in 2016 and 2017. She joins Leah O’Connor as the second Michigan State woman to be named the Women’s Track Athelete of the Big Ten Championships. O’Connor gained the feat in 2015.

It was quite the result for Magness, who posted a time of 33:37.17 on Friday in her first-ever race at the 10,000m, claiming the gold medal.
