            GORHAM, Maine -- The Little East Conference announced its first slate of men's cross country weekly award winners for the 2018 season with University of Southern Maine freshman Yahya Nure (South Portland, Maine/Deering) being selected as the Rookie of the Week.

            Nure made his collegiate debut a memorable one taking the top spot at the Huskies' annual Alumni Meet.  Nure covered the 5,000-meter course in a time of 16 minutes, seven seconds to edge sophomore teammate Cameron Meier (Bowdoin, Maine/Mt. Ararat) by one second.  The duo led this year's team past the Alumni 18-45.

            Southern Maine will be back on the trails on September 15 running in the Bates Invitational at Pineland Farms (New Gloucester, Maine).
