CAMBRIDGE, Mass. – University of New Hampshire men's indoor track & field sophomore, Matt Guarente (Saugus, Mass.), has been named America East Field Performer of the Week for the week ending Dec. 5, the conference announced Tuesday.
Guarente placed third in the high jump with a leap of 2.03 meters at the Jay Carisella Carnival on Dec. 4 at the Reggie Lewis Center in Boston, Mass. Guarente, who finished third at the 2010 America East Indoor Championship with a jump of 1.93 meters, bettered the height cleared by last season's America East champion by .05 meters in his season-opening performance.
Guarente and the Wildcats return to action Saturday, Dec. 11 when they travel to the University of Maine for a dual-meet.
