Hoggard Named LEC Rookie Track Athlete of the Week
GORHAM, Maine -- The Little East Conference announced this afternoon that University of Southern Maine freshman Mykayla Hoggard (Bangor, Maine) has been selected at the Track Rookie of the Week for the week of January 14-20.
The weekly honor was the third of Hoggard's rookie season. She previously had been selected as the Field Rookie of the Week on January 7, and she was a member of the Relay of the Week on December 17.
Competing at the Bowdoin Invitational II meet this past Saturday, Hoggard posted a pair of season-best times to score in the 60-meter dash and the 200 meters. Hoggard had the fourth quickest time of the dash trials at 8.17 seconds (best among all freshmen), then came back in the final to place third (top frosh) with her time of 8.19 seconds. In her first 200-meter race of the season, Hoggard finished fourth with her time of 27.03 seconds, just missing the N.E. Division III Championships qualifying standard of 27.00.
Southern Maine finished sixth in the team standings scoring 37 points with Hoggard responsible for 10 of those points.
The Huskies will host their final home event of the 2018-19 indoor season this Saturday (11 a.m.) hosting the USM Open III meet.
