GORHAM, Maine -- The Little East Conference today announced that University of Southern Maine junior Jared Marshall (Gloucester, Mass.) and the Huskies' 4 x 400-meter relay team have been selected for weekly recognition in men's track and field for the week ending January 21.
Marshall was named the Track Athlete of the Week for the second time this season. The relay is the third different USM group to be honored this season.
Competing at the Bowdoin Invitational #2 meet, Marshall, the 2017 LEC indoor Track Rookie of the Year, finished second in the 60-meter dash (7.08 seconds) and third in the 200 meters (22.67). His 60-meter dash time moved him into a tie for 7th in the latest New England Division III rankings, and the 200 time ranks second in the region.
The Huskies' 4 x 400-meter relay foursome of sophomore Donivyn Harms (Westbrook, Maine/Rochelle (Ill.)), sophomore Cam Labrie (Tamworth, N.H./Kennett), junior Devin Warren (Smithfield, Maine/Messalonskee) and junior Hany Ramadan (Portland, Maine/Deering) posted the fifth best time in the nation, and the best in New England Division III, at the Bowdoin Invitational #2 meet, winning the event with a time of 3:23.18 (for national ranking purposes, converted to a 3:19.99 according to Direct Athletics).
M.I.T. took the top spot in the final team standings with 174.50 points. Tufts University was second with 132, followed by Bowdoin with 100, Merrimack College with 88 and Southern Maine 61.50.
