COLCHESTER, Vt. - Saint Michael's College cross country sophomores Abby French (Nashua, N.H./Academy of Notre Dame) and Kevin Jeter (Eden Prairie, Minn./Eden Prairie) were named to the Northeast-10 Conference Weekly Honor Roll for the week ending on Sunday, Oct. 8, both landing their second straight selection. It was the seventh weekly accolade of French's young career, and her fourth laurel this fall, while Jeter claimed his second career award.
French was 17th among 257 finishers in a time of 19:28 at the 5K James Earley Invitational on Saturday at Stanley Park in Westfield, Mass. The Purple Knights finished 12th out of 41 schools, as French claimed a PR for the second straight meet, trimming five seconds off of her previous best. She has paced the Purple Knights 10 times in as many career races.
Jeter placed 19th among 266 finishers with a time of 27:02 at the 8K James Earley Invitational, lowering his time for the second straight meet. The Purple Knights finished 14th among 40 schools, including first out of three NE10 schools. Jeter has crossed the line first among Saint Michael's harriers during seven of his last eight completed races, including all three this fall.
Both Saint Michael's squads return to Stanley Park on Oct. 22 for the NE10 Championship, with the women's race beginning at 11 a.m. and the men at 12 p.m.
