University of New Mexico senior Lee Emanuel was recognized by national track and field website Flotrack.com as having the best "Kick Of The Week" in his record-setting performance in the 800 meters on Jan. 24 in the Cherry & Silver Invitational at the Albuquerque Convention Center.

Emanuel clocked an altitude-adjusted time of 1:50.30 to break Roger Moore's 26-year old school record and provisionally qualify for the NCAA Indoor Championships in the event. The Hastings, England product moved from third to first over the final 200 meters, blowing past BYU's Jacob Gustaffson in the final 50 meters.
