Track & Field’s Read Earns Weekly Conference Honor
CAMBRIDGE, Mass. – After a solid performance over the weekend, senior Rosemary Read (West Greenwich, R.I.) of the University of New Hampshire women's indoor track & field team was named the America East Field Performer of the Week, announced by the league Tuesday afternoon.
Read, who earned the award two times last season, had a qualifying effort over the weekend against Maine as she won the weight throw with a distance of 53'10.5" to secure a spot in the ECAC/IC4A Championship. The senior's throw is also currently the top distance in the America East. Read's efforts helped New Hampshire beat Maine 109-80.
The Wildcats return to action on Saturday, Jan. 19 when they host Holy Cross and Stonehill in a tri-meet at the Paul Sweet Oval.
