Two Patriot League outdoor track and field student-athletes were honored as ECAC Players of the Week, it was announced on Wednesday evening by the ECAC. Army junior track athlete Meghan Curran and Lafayette senior field athlete Ashley Harbin were each recognized for their performances last week. For Harbin, it is the second-consecutive week that she has been the recipient of an ECAC Player of the Week award.
Curran placed first in the 10,000m race at the Dick Shea Invite. She ran the race in an ECAC qualifying time of 37:06.90 under extremely adverse running conditions.
Harbin won the hammer throw (59.36m) and the discus (41.48m) at the Lafayette 5-Way Meet. The senior's hammer throw re-affirms her qualification for the NCAA East Regional Meet.
