GORHAM, Maine -- The Little East Conference announced today that University of Southern Maine sophomore Hannah Damron (Windham, Maine) has been selected the women's outdoor track and field Rookie of the Week for the week of April 7-13. This is the first weekly outdoor recognition for Damron.
Competing this past weekend at the Brown University Invitational, Damron moved into second place on the Huskies' all-time list in the 800-meter run with her time of two minutes, 17.09 seconds. Damron placed fifth overall, and according to Direct Athletics she ranks 38th nationally in Division III. Damron's time met the qualifying standard for the New England Division III and ECAC Division III Championships next month.
