     NEW ORLEANS — Xavier University of Louisiana's Devinn Rolland is the Gulf Coast Athletic Conference Athlete of the Week in women's track and field for March 4-10.
     Rolland, a sophomore from Harvey, La., and a graduate of Cabrini High School, won the track award after running 100 meters in 12.06 seconds Saturday at the McNeese Cowboy Relays in Lake Charles, La., and placing fourth out of 44 runners. Her time met the B-standard qualifying mark for the NAIA Championships in May.
     Rolland also ran anchor legs on the Gold Nuggets' 800 relay team which placed sixth (1:42.67) and the 400 relay team which finished 11th (season-best 48.60).
     Rolland repeated as the GCAC field winner after jumping a season-best 5.72 meters (18 feet, 9 inches) at McNeese and finishing second. She met the NAIA's A-standard in that event for the second consecutive meet.
     Rolland's marks in the long jump and 100 rank first on the 2013 NAIA outdoor list. Next for the XU women and men will be the Louisiana Classics on Friday and Saturday in Lafayette, La.
