 Tucson, Ariz. – Redshirt junior Pau Tonnesen was named Pac-12 Men's Field Athlete of the Week for his performance at the Jim Click Multis last weekend. It was announced by the Pac-12 on Monday. Tonnesen is the first Wildcat to earn any (men or women, track or field) any Pac-12 Athlete of the Week honors this season.

Tonnesen competed in his first decathlon since the spring of 2013 this past week and he surely made up for lost time. After redshirting the 2014 outdoor season and 2015 indoor season, Tonnesen's first decathlon as a Wildcat is the fifth-best score in UA history. He scored 7,783 points over the two days, posting the No. 2 score in the country on the year and tops in the Pac-12 by over 200 points.

The Pac-12 Women's Track Athlete of the Week was Kendall Ellis (USC). Jenna Prandini (Oregon) was named Women's Field Athlete of the Week. Thomas Joyce (Cal) was the Men's Track Athlete of the Week.
