ATLANTA, Ga. – Lipscomb track & fields’ Kiara Carter and Aislinn McElhaney claimed two of the ASUN’s outdoor track & field titles up for grabs after a big weekend in Raleigh. Carter earned the ASUN women’s Track Athlete of the Week title while McElhaney brought home the ASUN women’s Field Athlete of the Week title.
