McGuffie Named Little East Rookie Field Athlete of the Week

NORTH DARTMOUTH, Mass. – For the second time this season freshman Hulerie McGuffie (Lynn, Mass) has been named the Little East Conference Rookie Field Athlete of the Week as announced by the conference office on Monday.

McGuffie earned the weekly honor after winning the long jump event at Sunday's Little East Conference/New England Alliance Championship meet.  With a jump of 17-09.50 feet, McGuffie broke the program record which had stood for more than 20 years.

The closest competitor to the freshman standout finished 3.5 inches behind her and helped the women's program to a fifth place finish overall at the conference championship.
