Pilgrim Named Outstanding Rebel of the Week

May 3, 2017

LAS VEGAS ( - UNLV Track & Field senior Kaysee Pilgrim has been named the Outstanding Rebel of the Week presented by Air Force Reserve, the school announced Wednesday.

The award goes to the student-athlete who turned in the best individual performance during the previous week of competition from Monday through Sunday as voted on by the UNLV Athletic Communications department.

Pilgrim, a Phoenix, Ariz., native, registered an outdoor program record and personal-best measurement of 6-1.25 (1.86m) in the high jump at the Adidas/Steve Scott Invitational in Irvine, Calif., last weekend. The mark was 1.50 inches (.06m) better than the 6-0.75/ (1.86m) she posted at last season's Mt. SAC Relays. Overall, she leads the Mountain West and the entire West Region in the event and currently sits second overall in the country.

Up next for Pilgrim and the Rebel track & field team is the Mountain West Outdoor Championships, which will take place May 10-13, in Logan, Utah.
