December 6, 2016--Mount St. Mary's senior Julian Woods has been selected as the Northeast Conference Athlete of the Week while freshman Chelsea Wright has earned NEC Rookie of the Week honors, announced today by the conference.
Woods, the NEC champion in the 60m hurdles last season, started the 2016-17 season off strong, finishing in second place in the 60m hurdles at the Navy Invitational in a time of 8.07 seconds, just .01 behind the winner. Woods' mark was a qualifying time for the IC4A Championships.
A freshman, Wright made her Mount St. Mary's debut at the Navy Lid Lifter, posting a high jump of 1.60m. That was the top mark of the first weekend in the NEC, and it was good for third place at the meet.
The Mount indoor track and field teams return to action on Saturday, January 7, at the Father Diamond Invitational hosted by George Mason University.
