COLCHESTER, Vt. - Saint Michael's College women's cross country first-year Abby French (Nashua, N.H./Academy of Notre Dame) was named to the Northeast-10 Conference Weekly Honor Roll for the week ending on Sunday, Sept. 18, landing the accolade for the second time in as many weeks she has been considered this fall.
French was seventh among 135 collegiate runners on Saturday at the NCAA East Regional Championship Preview Meet in Contoocook, N.H., clocking in at 19:37.0 while besting all but one runner from the two regionally-ranked teams in the race, Bentley University and Merrimack College. The Purple Knights placed seventh out of 12 schools. French's showing came on the heels of taking second in her college debut on Sept. 4 at Saint Anselm College.
Saint Michael's returns to action on Sept. 30, hosting the Vermont Intercollegiate Championship on campus for the first time since 2011. The women's race begins at 3:30 p.m., and the men start 45 minutes later.
