Perteete Named Outstanding Rebel Of The Week

May 16, 2018

LAS VEGAS ( - UNLV track and field freshman Avi'Tal Perteete has been named the Outstanding Rebel of the Week presented by Air Force Reserve, the school announced Wednesday. This is the second time during the 2017-18 academic year she has earned the honor.

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.

Perteete, from Oakland, California, helped the Rebels finish second at the 2018 Mountain West Outdoor Championships last weekend after winning the 800 meter race and a second-place finish with the 4x400m relay team. In her 800m victory, she recorded a time of 2:02.87, which is a conference record in the event and the second-best all-time performance in UNLV history. Her 800 meter time also ranks fifth in both the West Region and the nation this spring. The second-place finish by Perteete and the 4x400 relay team was significant as it moved UNLV from third to second in the standings. For her performance in the 800m and relay events, Perteete was named to the MW's All-Conference Team.
